University Preparedness Planning

Loyola University Chicago's emergency response, planning, and decision making which began back in February, has evolved as the pandemic unfolded and is on-going. Our top priority remains Health & Safety, followed by academic continuity (teaching, research and learning) and student recruitment & retention. The emergency response organizational chart depicts our current organization structure. This will continue to evolve—expanding and contracting as needed by our response. There are now nearly 250 faculty, staff and students working daily on our emergency response and planning for a return to the “next normal” of University Operations. Learn more

Reporting Protocol

Loyola's Emergency Response Management team has been working to develop protocols in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines that help ensure the health and safety of our community. Given the rising number of COVID-19 cases across our country, students, faculty, and staff who have tested positive for COVID-19 must report their case to the University as soon as possible. If you have tested positive for the virus, please contact us at COVID-19report@LUC.edu or by calling 773-508-7707.  More Information »
