Filing Report or Complaint

Elgin Community College is an organization with strong values of responsibility and integrity. We are committed to an environment where open, honest communications are the expectation, not the exception. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are integral to the college's culture. ECC Community members have a range of ways to report challenges or concerns and can be assured that their concerns are taken seriously.

These forms should not be used during an emergency. If this is an emergency, please call 911 from a landline.

Filing a report does not constitute filing an official police report. To file an official police report, contact the Campus Police Department or in person on the first floor near the Building D entrance. For incidents occurring off-campus in the City of Elgin, call 847-289-2700 or your local police department.
