Safety Tips

I.  Getting There, Getting Back

On the street

On your bike

Chicago has recently experienced a rise in the occurrence of bicycle thefts. The Campus Safety Department offers the following advice to help keep your bicycle safe:

In your car

On Public Transit


II.  While on Site


Planning ahead


If Serving in a Private Setting (e.g. a client’s home)

In Case of Injury…


III.  If Something Happens On-Site or in the Neighborhood of Your Service Site…

If an incident occurs while you are on-site or in the area of your service site, OR if you are injured or made to feel unsafe while performing your volunteer service, contact your agency supervisor, your instructor, and/or the Service-Learning Coordinator (as appropriate) to discuss what actions the agency and school should take to insure your physical and emotional well-being.

All incidents occurring on, near, or in transit to/from your service site should be reported on the CEL’s  Incident Report form within 48 hours. The form is available on this website at www.LUC.edu/experiential/incident_report and can be completed online.

Regardless of the nature of the incident, try to STAY CALM.  Your instructor, the agency, the CEL staff, and Loyola’s various student support services will help you.
