Equitable Resolution Procedures ("ERP") for Complaints of Discrimination, Sexual Misconduct, and Retaliation

THE EQUITABLE RESOLUTION PROCEDURES ("ERP") IS A SET OF PROCEDURES that Loyola uses to address complaints. The ERP is intentionally broad in its scope and application, informed by the University‚Äôs mission and values, and is in compliance with applicable laws.

If an affected party files an ERP complaint, the affected party (now a "complainant") has requested that the University take action to investigate and adjudicate allegations against a respondent (a student, faculty, or staff member). Loyola employs the ERP to thoroughly, fairly, and impartially assess the available evidence and implement an appropriate response.

The ERP has up to three major phases:

  1. Investigation, resulting in a finding of either "Responsible" or "Not Responsible"
  2. Administrative Resolution, when applicable
  3. Appeals, when applicable

GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE EQUITABLE RESOLUTION PROCEDURES CAN BE FOUND BELOW AND IN ARTICLE 2 OF THE COMPREHENSIVE POLICY.
