Where To Turn When Facing Danger

Where To Turn When Facing Danger

Spring Hill Hall 2016


The last few weeks have left many fearful, outraged and confused of their future and their safety as a consequence of the presidential election. Loyola does not tolerate hate in any form on its campuses and all instances should be reported to Campus Safety immediately. Over the weekend, sometime overnight between February 4 and 5, the Loyola Community has been made aware of the hate speech graffiti that was left near the door of a student’s room in Spring Hill Hall on the Lake Shore Campus.

What is Xenophobia? Xenophobia is the intense or irrational dislike or fear of people from other countries. It is important to keep in mind that Xenophobia or any other forms of discrimination are not allowed in the Loyola community. Loyola’s commitment to diversity is a key value that provides a home for all faiths and welcome every person as a reflection of god. We should embrace and learn from those of a different background than us. It can be scary knowing where we have arrived in the political world, but as people, we should reflect the good values and look upon the greatness of others. Our focus is to ensure the protection of our fellow colleagues and faculty members by standing in solidarity and advocating for a peaceful society that we are called to build upon.

In the case where you feel like you have become the target of a hate crime or any other sort of discrimination/danger, please notify Campus Safety immediately. I can’t emphasis this enough because our lives can be put in danger any second, and it is important that we are vocal about the issues and stay strong as a community.

In the event of an emergency, immediate notification to the Department of Campus Safety is essential to ensure the timely response of emergency personnel.
