In the event of any critical incident, students can speak with the Dean-on-Call (DoC) or the Sexual Assault Dean-on-Call (SADoC) 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. The DoC or the SADoC can be reached by calling the University of Chicago Police Department (UCPD) Dispatch at 773.702.8181
and asking for the Dean-on-Call or the Sexual Assault Dean-on-Call. The dispatcher will notify the DoC or the SADoC and the DoC or the SADoC will contact the caller back. A caller does not have to tell the dispatcher why he or she is calling or give his or her name. Students can also page the DoC or the SADoC directly, by dialing 773.834.HELP (4357)
, and following the instructions on the automated system. Students should be prepared to punch in their call back number. The DoC or the SADoC will contact the caller back. Visit http://deanoncall.uchicago.edu

In the event that a student experiences or witnesses an incident of bias, students have the opportunity to speak with the on-call Bias Response Team (BRT) Member. The direct number for the on-call Bias Response Team member is 773.834.HELP (4357). Just like the DoC and SADoC, a BRT Member is on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. The on-call BRT member is available to inform students how to seek guidance and support for bias-related incidents that occur on campus.
If you are the victim of a crime, witness a crime, or feel suspicious about something, there are many ways to call for help by using campus telephones or the emergency telephones throughout the Hyde Park neighborhood. The University of Chicago Police Department is the main resource for students who have been victims of crime or the witnesses of crime, but they are also able to direct students to other services and individuals that can help with unique cases.
