Critical Title IX Information

The following is critical (and some time-sensitive) information for survivors of sexual assault or other forms of gender-based violence.


Right to Report

Any student who has experienced gender-based misconduct (including but not limited to sexual assault, dating/domestic violence, sexual harassment, and stalking) has a right to report the incident to Loyola, law enforcement (CPD), both, or neither. If the student wishes to report confidentially (without triggering any additional outreach or action) they should contact one of three resources:

Any report received by other faculty or staff will be directed to the Title IX Deputy Coordinator, and will still be considered private and sensitive.


Right to Assistance

Any student who would like assistance notifying law enforcement or accessing and navigating campus and local health and mental health services, counseling, and advocacy services, may contact any of the campus resources listed below and assistance will be provided. The primary points of contact for students are the Assistant Dean of Students and Title IX Deputy Coordinator (Courtney Bilbrey, cbilbrey@luc.edu) and the Assistant Director for Health Promotions/Confidential Advisor (Mira Krivoshey, mkrivoshey@luc.edu).


Right to Accommodations and Interim Safety Measures

Any student who has experienced gender-based misconduct may request reasonable accommodations and/or interim protective measures through the Office of the Dean of Students or through the Wellness Center Sexual Assault Advocates. Such measures may include but are not limited to:

  • Temporary No Contact Directive (prevents a fellow Loyola student from contacting you)
  • Accommodations to ensure safe access to academic, housing, dining, work, or transportation needs
  • Assistance with academics including faculty notifications
  • Limited assistance with legal, visa, and immigration issues (upon request)
