Campus Coalition for Alcohol Initiatives
The Loyola University Chicago Campus Coalition for Alcohol Initiatives (CCAI) is comprised of university-wide representatives committed to shifting the culture surrounding alcohol as it relates to the students, faculty, staff, and surrounding community. This will be accomplished through a multi-pronged approach that focuses on prevention, intervention, and environmental strategies.

Good Samaritan Policy
At Loyola University Chicago, student safety is a paramount concern. In incidents of crisis or medical emergency, Loyola students are expected to care for themselves and for others in the Loyola community by getting help from appropriate officials even when violations of the Community Standards have occurred. Because the University understands that fear of disciplinary actions may deter requests for emergency assistance, the Good Samaritan Policy was created to alleviate such concerns and reduce hesitation by Loyola students to seek help.
In crisis situations involving alcohol, drugs, and/or sexual misconduct (see below), the University strongly considers the positive impact of taking responsible action when determining the appropriate response for alleged policy violations relating to the incident. This means that no formal University disciplinary actions or sanctions will be assigned to the reporting student(s) for (1) Category A alcohol or (2) Category A or B drug infractions relating to the incident. The incident will still be documented; and educational and/or health interventions may be required as a condition of deferring disciplinary sanctions.
This policy does not protect repeated, flagrant, or serious violations of the Community Standards (including bodily harm, sexual misconduct, distribution of alcohol or drugs, hazing, theft, property damage, etc.) or violations that caused harm to another person requiring emergency response, nor does the policy preclude or prevent action by police or legal authorities.
Failure of students to take responsible action under this policy where action is clearly warranted and harm results may, in egregious circumstances, constitute “bodily harm” under the Community Standards and will void all protections under this provision.
In a situation involving imminent danger to the health and safety of any individual(s), students are expected (1) to contact Campus Safety (773.508.6039 or 8.6039 from a campus phone), Residence Life, or other emergency officials to report the incident; (2) to remain with the individual(s) needing emergency treatment and cooperate with emergency personnel as long as it is safe to do so; and (3) to meet with appropriate University officials after the incident and cooperate with any University investigation.
2. Sexual Assault
In a situation where a sexual assault (“nonconsensual sexual intercourse” or “nonconsensual sexual contact” according to the Community Standards) has been alleged to have been committed against any individual(s), students are encouraged (1) to contact Campus Safety (773.508.6039 or 8.6039 from a campus phone), Residence Life, or other emergency officials to report the incident; (2) to remain with the individual(s) needing support and cooperate with emergency personnel as long as it is safe to do so; and (3) to meet with appropriate University officials after the incident and cooperate with any University investigation.
