Assistance is available to anyone involved with a report or complaint.
When applicable, Loyola will offer and/or implement appropriate and reasonably available supportive measures for reporters, affected parties, complainants, respondents, and/or witnesses in response to a report or complaint of alleged discrimination, sexual misconduct, or other related offenses.
Supportive measures are non-disciplinary, and are designed to restore or preserve equal access to the University’s education program or activity without unreasonably burdening other parties. Supportive measures may be designed to protect the safety of all parties or the University’s educational environment or deter prohibited conduct. The University treats supportive measures as private, provided that privacy does not impair the University’s ability to implement the supportive measures. Supportive measures are available independently of whether a formal complaint is filed by the affected party or initiated by the OEC, and are provided at no cost to parties.
Supportive measures may include, but are not limited to:
- Referral to counseling, medical, advocacy, and/or other health services
- Referral to the Employee Assistance Program (for faculty and staff employees)
- Mutual restrictions on contact between parties (No Contact Directives)
- Advocating to faculty for adjustments to academic deadlines, course schedules, etc.
- Student financial aid counseling
- Education to the community or community subgroup
- Altering housing situation
- Altering work locations or arrangements for faculty or staff employees or student workers
- Safety planning
- Providing transportation/parking assistance
- Referral for academic support
- Referral for visa or immigration assistance
