Community

Members of the surrounding community who are not current students or employees but who are affected by student behavior while on campus may also seek to utilize some of the resources at Harper College. Community members are encouraged to report incidents of concern to the appropriate offices, including:

  • If you have been a victim of a crime or feel concerned for your immediate safety on campus, contact Harper College Police Department at 847.925.6630.
  • If you have observed behaviors that make you think someone might engage in violence on campus or towards the Harper College community, contact the Harper Early Alert Team (HEAT), which is the campus threat assessment and behavioral intervention team.  Examples of reasons to contact HEAT include: an indirect threat, mentioning having a weapon, expressed strong targeted anger, etc. HEAT's procedures include an investigation and assessment process, so if you need an immediate response, contact the Harper College Police Department. 
  • If you have experienced gender-based or sexual harassment, learn more about Title IX and contact one of the College's Title IX Coordinators.
