Harassment Prevention Training

January 3, 2017

Dear Colleagues,

Loyola University Chicago is committed to building and preserving a welcoming and inclusive community where everyone can work together, free from all forms of exploitation, intimidation, and harassment, including sexual harassment. Our Jesuit, Catholic mission and our commitment to upholding the dignity of every person compels us to actively foster a community that values and respects one another.

As you know, Loyola does not tolerate any form of harassment—such behavior is prohibited by law and by University policy. Ongoing education is one important way that Human Resources works to advance and sustain a positive, healthy, and inclusive environment for our mutual benefit and safety. In the coming week, full-time faculty as well as full-time and part-time staff members will be provided with information to access the online, interactive Harassment Prevention Training. This compulsory training is designed to increase awareness and to promote the prevention of any and all forms of harassment on our campuses.

Completion of this compliance training is required and is central to our efforts to ensure that all faculty and staff have the opportunity to work in a safe, respectful, and inclusive campus community. Loyola is committed to practicing responsible engagement activities, including understanding the duty to report harassment concerns that you may have.

Thank you in advance for completing this compulsory training by February 7. If you have any questions regarding this initiative, please contact Human Resources at 312.915.6175 or visit LUC.edu/hr.

Sincerely,

Jo Ann Rooney, JD, LLM, EdD
President
