RespectNU is not a replacement for emergency services. Any student who may be the victim of a hate crime or other incident requiring police intervention should immediately:
- Call the Northwestern University Police Department at 847-491-3246
- If the student is not on campus, local police at 911.
Like wise, RespectNU is not are placement for the Northwestern University's Office of Equal Opportunity and Access (OEOA). While the Bias Incident Incident Response Team (BIRT) will refer students who may have experienced prohibited discrimination to OEOA and will notify OEOA of any incident that violates Northwestern's Policy on Discrimination and Harassment, it will not conduct formal discrimination investigations. Any student who wishes to pursue a complaint of discrimination or harassment should contact OEOA as follows:
