ICC Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) is one option for a survivor/victim to report a sexual assault. In cases where an assault is reported to SART, the team will convene to discuss the incident and formulate a response that supports the survivor, assists with coordinating appropriate services, and is in line with the policies and procedures of ICC, while maintaining the appropriate confidentiality for the survivor. Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) officers may not reveal the survivor’s name or other identifying information concerning the incident that could compromise the survivor’s privacy without his/her consent, except where a clearly documented, compelling good faith legal compulsion to disclose exists.
The Sexual Assault Response Team is a standing team that serves the college and community by providing support for survivors/victims of sexual assault on campus, by developing appropriate education and training opportunities for students and staff, and by working with campus and community law enforcement and service providers to jointly serve as the community task force specified in state mandate 110 ILCS 12/10 for the purpose of “improving coordination between community leaders and service providers to prevent sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking and to ensure a coordinated response both in terms of law enforcement and survivor/victim services.”
The Student Services Division will coordinate communication and educational and support services provided to the college community.
