Concerned about a possible violation and are uncomfortable raising it through normal channels? Use the anonymous reporting line, Black Hawk College’s anonymous reporting service. Information will be relayed to the appropriate college official to investigate your concern. Knowingly making false reports can lead to discipline.
A student who has a complaint should work with the individual who the complaint is against. If that person is not available or the student is uncomfortable working with that individual, the student should discuss the complaint with a BHC employee who can direct the student to the proper individual. The student may also contact an Academic Dean, the Vice President for Instruction, or the Title IX Coordinator for assistance. A student wishing to file a complaint without speaking to a person may do so by completing the Black Hawk College website contact form. If the specific concern has not been resolved in an expeditious and fair manner at BHC, the student may file a complaint with the Illinois Community College Board or out-of-state online students may also file a complaint in the state which he or she resides.
