Crime Statistics Collection

For the purpose of collecting and reporting of campus crime statistics in accordance with the Clery Act, as indicated herein, all alleged on-campus crimes reported to University Police are included in the Campus Crime Statistical Report. In addition, the following officials of the university have been identified as a "campus security authority"* and alleged crimes reported to these individuals will also be included in the campus crime report:

All administrative employees in the Division of Student Affairs, including, but not limited to, Vice President for Student Affairs; Associate Vice President for Student Affairs; Directors, Associate Directors and Assistant Directors of Residential Life; Resident Assistants and Desk Assistants of Residential Life; Director of New Student Orientation; Director of Joseph A. Danna Center and Student Activities; Associate Directors and Assistant Directors for Student Activities and Center Services; Directors, Associate Directors, Assistant Directors and all team coaches for Recreational Sports and Intercollegiate Athletics; Director and Assistant Director of the Center for International Education, and Directors for Programs Abroad; Administrative Director for Student Health Services; and all University Police personnel.

Others designated as a campus security authority include all advisors to student groups, clubs and organizations; all faculty/staff advisors to student groups, clubs and organizations; all non-processional counselors (such as victim advocates), presidents of fraternities/sororities whose student organization is recognized by Loyola University and which organization(s) owns immovable property (buildings).

Also included herein are all crimes as specified in the Clery Act reported by the New Orleans Police Department to Loyola University.

Excluded under the regulations of the Clery Act for reporting crimes are pastoral and professional counselors employed by Loyola University.*

The Campus Crime Report follows UCR standards and definitions of crimes. NOTE: A formal police report need not be made for crime incidents to be included in the annual report.

All other crime statistics and disciplinary referrals, as defined by the Clery Act, are reported to University Police throughout the year and are compiled and distributed annually in compliance with this federal law.

If University Police or the New Orleans Police Department, upon further investigation of the alleged crime, concludes that the allegations reported are not substantiated by the facts or comply with the law, the alleged crime will not be included in the Campus Crime Statistical Report.

Crimes reported to University Police are distributed in a monthly statistical report, which is submitted to the university community through its respective academic and administrative department heads, including the Student Government Association and The Loyola Maroon. This report reflects all criminal incidents reported.

*Pastoral Counselor is a person who is associated with a religious order or denomination, and is recognized by that religious order or denomination as someone who provides confidential counseling and is functioning within that confidential role at the time the crime is reported.

*Professional Counselor is a person whose official responsibilities include providing mental health counseling to the institution’s community, and who is functioning within the scope of his or her license or certification.
