I am writing to let you know about the arrest of a student who was charged today with two counts of criminal sexual assault. The alleged incidents occurred on campus during the weekend of January 12 and were reported to Campus Safety on January 26. Currently the offender is awaiting trial.
Sexual assault is an incredibly personal and sensitive crime that the University takes very seriously. There are numerous resources available to Loyola students who may need assistance in dealing with sexual assault. The Coordinated Community Response Team is a collaborative effort within the University to help students who may have experienced sexual violence, dating violence, or stalking. Anyone interested in learning more about the programs that are in place can check the website at LUC.edu/ccrt.
In addition, Loyola also has an EthicsLine Reporting Hotline, a new centralized and confidential 24/7 web/phone reporting system for students, faculty, and staff to report incidents that may involve misconduct; discriminatory actions; academic, financial, and/or regulatory compliance issues; or other violations of University policy. The new system can be accessed online or by calling 855.603.6988.
To learn more about how to report an incident of sexual assault, dating violence, or stalking, visit LUC.edu/ccrt/reporting/how-report. Also, in case of an emergency, students are encouraged to contact Campus Safety at 773.508.6039 (24 hours a day) or the Chicago Police Department at 9-1-1.
