Documenting your Engaged Learning in LOCUS

Loyola University Chicago now requires all students completing an engaged learning class to document their site or project information and learning objectives in LOCUS. This information is used for institutional research and documentation; however, most important to you, it is used for risk management/insurance purposes and to substantiate your fieldwork experience. Follow the instructions at this webpage to enter your information: LEARN MORE.

Note: If your organization is not found and you submitted your Engaged Learning site information in the Link to Organization Form, a verification e-mail will be sent to both you and your professor.

Reporting Problems that Arise in Experiential Learning

If in the course of your academic internship, you encounter an "incident," defined as any experience you had on site, in transit to/from a site, or with a Loyola student that you feel put you, your fellow students/volunteers/staffpersons, and/or your clients at risk, please complete the Incident Report Form at the link.

Note: If this is an emergency, please dial 911 immediately. If you are a Loyola student and in need of non-emergency medical or psychological support, please contact the University Wellness Center at 773.508.2530.
