Resources There are a number of people and resources available to students who have experienced sexual or interpersonal misconduct. Faculty and Staff Faculty and Staff We encourage you to talk to people you trust including Loyola Law School professors and staff. Please know that every Loyola Law School faculty and staff member (with the exception of those listed as Confidential and Private Resources below) and some student staff are considered a “responsible employee” and are obligated to report all details of an incident of sexual or interpersonal misconduct to Campus Safety & Security. That includes the identities of those involved. Campus Safety & Security will then notify the Title IX Coordinator. Students reporting an incident of sexual or interpersonal misconduct to a responsible employee may request that their information be kept private. Students should be aware that if they request for their information to remain private, then the Law School’s ability to effectively investigate and adjudicate the instance(s) of sexual or interpersonal misconduct may be impaired. The Law School cannot guarantee privacy in this instance, and the following factors will be considered by the Title IX Coordinator, or designee, in consultation with the Dean of Students, or designee, in determining whether the privacy request can be honored or if an investigation is necessary: The Respondent has known prior allegations of sexual or interpersonal misconduct and a potential for a campus safety risk exists; or A threat to the campus community at large or a particular community member has been identified; or The sexual or interpersonal misconduct was perpetrated with a weapon; or The victim is a minor; or Some combination of the above factors exists. The Title IX Coordinator, or designee, in consultation with the Dean of Students or a designee, is responsible for determining whether the privacy of the Complainant can be honored. If the decision is made that privacy cannot be honored, then the Law School will only inform the necessary individuals and entities on campus required to perform a thorough investigation and adjudication of the complaint. The Law School will respond to any accusations of Retaliation against the Complainant or witnesses brought upon by the investigation or adjudication of the misconduct. Confidential Resources Confidential Resources If you are uncomfortable about a report to Campus Safety & Security and to the Title IX Coordinator, you may consult a confidential resource. These individuals are not required to report any information regarding an alleged sexual or interpersonal misconduct to Campus Safety & Security, the Title IX Coordinator or any other reporting body on campus without your consent.

Reports by the CRA will not trigger a Law School investigation unless the Title IX Coordinator, or designee, in consultation with the Dean of Students, or designee, determines that an investigation is necessary because of the existence of one or more of the following factors: The respondent has known prior allegations of sexual or interpersonal misconduct and a potential for a campus safety risk exists; or The location in which the alleged incident occurred is a location where previous complaints of sexual or interpersonal misconduct occurred creating the potential for an unsafe environment for the Loyola Law School community; or A threat to the campus community at large has been identified; or A frequency or pattern is detected that suggests an unsafe environment exists for the Loyola Law School community or a Loyola Law School community member; or The sexual or interpersonal misconduct was perpetrated with a weapon; or The victim is a minor; or Some combination of the above factors exists. Callisto (Online Reporting & Support Resource) Callisto (Online Reporting & Support Resource) Callisto is an online tool designed to create a more empowering reporting experience for student survivors. It provides students three options: students can record and save time-stamped records of the incident; they can record and then report the incident electronically to campus authorities; or students can opt into a matching system that only releases their names to the Law School or University if another student reports the same alleged respondent.
