Title IX Notification and Sexual Misconduct Under the Comprehensive Policy

Loyola University Chicago does not discriminate on the basis of sex in any education program or activity that the University operates, and is required by Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 and 34 CFR Part 106 (collectively referred to as “Title IX”) not to discriminate in such a manner. This requirement extends to admission and employment.

The University’s Title IX policies are published within the Comprehensive Policy and Equitable Resolution Procedures for Discrimination, Sexual Misconduct, and Retaliation (“Comprehensive Policy”), which includes information and instructions on how to submit a report or file a formal complaint of sex discrimination, including sexual harassment. Inquiries about the application of Title IX at Loyola can be directed internally to the Title IX Coordinator and/or externally to the Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights in the United States Department of Education.

The Title IX Coordinator for Loyola University Chicago is the Executive Director for Equity & Compliance, in the Office for Equity & Compliance. Any person may report sex discrimination, including sexual harassment, by using the online reporting form (powered by Maxient™), or in person, by mail, by telephone, or by email, using the contact information listed below.

Loyola is fully compliant with Title IX and related laws and regulations, but considers them to be a minimum standard for ensuring a safe and inclusive University environment. Accordingly, Loyola reserves the right to address any allegation of sexual misconduct (including non-consensual sexual penetration, non-consensual sexual contact, sexual harassment, sexual exploitation, intimate partner and/or domestic violence, and stalking), even if the alleged conduct does not meet the definitional and jurisdictional requirements for Title IX sexual harassment, or if the conduct occurs off campus.

To raise any concern or conflict of interest regarding the Title IX Coordinator, or to report any misconduct or discrimination committed by the Title IX Coordinator, contact Dr. Winifred Williams, Vice President, Chief Human Resources Officer and Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer, at (312) 915-6175 or wwilliams5@luc.edu. For all other concerns related to Title IX and/or sexual misconduct, please contact the Title IX Coordinator.
