Definition of a Confidential Advisor: A person employed or contracted by a higher education institution to provide emergency and ongoing support to student survivors of sexual violence with the training, duties, and responsibilities described within the Illinois Preventing Sexual Violence in Higher Education Act. The university has confidential advisors to provide those who have experienced sexual misconduct with information on available counseling and crisis response services, to discuss reporting options and possible outcomes, and to advise survivors of their rights and the university’s responsibilities regarding orders of protection, no contact directives, or similar orders that the university, a criminal court, or a civil court may issue. If a survivor requests, confidential advisors can also liaise with campus officials, rape crisis centers, sexual assault centers, Wheaton College Public Safety and/or local law enforcement. Upon request, confidential advisors can also assist survivors with contacting and reporting to campus officials, Public Safety, and/or local law enforcement, and/or requesting appropriate interim/protective measures. Before being designated a confidential advisor, individuals must have 40 hours of training on sexual violence, and subsequently attend a minimum of 6 hours of ongoing education training annually on issues related to sexual violence. Confidential advisors are not required to notify the Title IX Coordinator of reports of sexual misconduct.
