I Want to Notify the University
There are several ways to notify the University of an incident of sexual assault, dating/domestic violence, or stalking:
Maxient: Maxient is the University’s automated reporting system for misconduct. You can fill out a form within the system and include as much or as little information as you'd like.
Anonymous Reporting: Anonymous reporting is available at Loyola through the Maxient form above. When you make an anonymous report here, your case will be assigned a number. Your name will not be included, but the University will be able to follow-up with you by that number if you choose to move forward with the University reporting process at a later time.
Reporting to a Title IX Coordinator Directly:
Reporting to Campus Safety:
There are two ways to file a report with Campus Safety:
- Report in person to the Campus Safety office at 6427 N. Sheridan Rd.
- Call the Campus Safety Dispatch Center at 773.508.7233
After filing a report with Campus Safety, they will contact the Office for Equity and Compliance.
All notices get sent to the Deputy Title IX Coordinator. They will then send you an e-mail with information about your rights and resources, along with an offer to meet in person. You can choose to accept or decline this meeting. If you decline the in-person meeting, no further action is taken. The only exception to this rule is if there is a present threat to the larger University community, in which case they have a duty to notify Campus Safety.
If you choose to meet, the Deputy Title IX Coordinator will more fully explain your options, including the option to file a formal complaint. Loyola has two main processes to investigate potential violations of our Comprehensive Policy - the Grievance Process and the Equitable Resolutions Process. Even if you choose not to pursue a formal complaint (e.g. investigation), you are eligible for supportive measures. Examples of supportive measures include housing changes, no-contact directives, advocating to faculty for academic flexibility, etc.
If you choose not to meet with the Deputy Title IX Coordinator at this time, know that you can follow-up with them at any point during your time at Loyola.
Depending on how you choose to report, all notices get sent to the Deputy Title IX Coordinator. They will keep the information as private as possible and will not share what you have provided unless there is a legitimate "need to know" by another staff member. The only exception to this rule is if there is a present threat to the larger University community, in which case they have a duty to notify Campus Safety.
