Community Incident Reporting

Loyola University Maryland sets high expectations of its students, faculty, staff, and administrators for conduct that supports an inclusive and caring community. Students and employees are expected to conduct themselves in such a manner as to ensure the health and welfare of all members of the Loyola community.

Community members may file incident reports through the following reporting methods.

Bias Related Behaviors

Every member of the University is responsible for fostering a sense of community and sending the message that mistreatment of others and insensitivity within our campus will not be tolerated.

Student Incidents

The Bias Reporting process is intended for incidents where a student has been harmed or caused the harm. Please report any instances of bias or mistreatment toward an individual or group because of their identity.

Employee Incidents

Faculty, staff, and administrators may pursue informal means for resolving work-related differences, when possible. When informal efforts are unsuccessful or are inappropriate, the University provides options to file complaints and to seek resolution. Report incidents of bias, harassment or discrimination, relation, and/or other grievances to human resources. Those who prefer to remain anonymous should report incidents via EthicsPoint, Loyola's confidential reporting service retained by the University for this purpose.
