Gender-based violence (dating violence/domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking) is not only against the law, but against Loyola University Chicago's Community Standards.
Gender-based violence is a public health issue, as it can affect physical and mental health of survivors. It can also negatively impact and disrupt entire populations, such as college campuses. For more information, please see CDC- Sexual Violence Prevention.
There are resources, reporting options and support services here on campus to help any students who are directly or indirectly affected by gender-based violence.
To connect with Loyola Advocacy Services, call the Sexual Assault Advocacy Line at 773-494-3810. The Line is open Monday-Friday, 8am-4:30pm and 24 hours on the weekend when classes are in session.
The Wellness Center has a sponsored student organization that focuses on gender-based violence awareness, prevention, and education called CHANGE. Please visit their website for more information.
