Policies & Procedures
The purpose of the Student Care Team (SCT) is to provide a regular opportunity for communication between departments, ensuring that all the resources of the University of Louisville are available to students in crisis.
The Persona Non Grata status is assigned to individuals who are not allowed on any University of Louisville property or at any University-sponsored events (on and off campus) due to their involvement in past incidents of policy infraction or criminal activity. If individuals on the list are found on University premises or at University sponsored events (on or off campus), the University Police will be called and they may be cited or arrested for criminal trespass. There is an appeal process in which, the online form and supporting documentation must be completed. The Student Care Team will review and make a recommendation regarding the appeal to the Dean of Students for final action.
Often students are the first to become aware of a concern that might jeopardize the safety of others in our university community. All members of the university community need to take an active role in reporting threats or concerns that could lead to violence or other criminal activity. The Anonymous Reporting Form and the silent Witness Program were developed to allow members of the university community to anonymously report criminal activity and other threats and/or concerns.
If you witness a crime or suspicious activity on campus or you are a victim of a crime and do not wish to make an official police report and you would like to report it anonymously, please click here
This form is a way for the Campus Community to bring to the attention of the University Police those items that they feel are a hazard or a safety concern. If for any reason you feel that it needs immediate attention call 852-6111. For further information, contact Mr. Dwain Archer at 852-FIRE.
Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute sexual harassment when (1) submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of an individual’s employment, or participation in a university-sponsored education program or activity; (2) submission to or rejection of such conduct by an individual is used as the basis for employment or academic decisions affecting such an individual; or (3) such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual’s employment or academic performance or creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working or educational environment.
Classroom Disruption is considered a violation of the Code of Student Conduct. Please visit for more information.
A student may request and be considered for a compassionate withdrawal when incapacitating circumstances, such as a serious illness or injury, prevent the student from continuing classes or from seeking academic withdrawal in the usual way. The compassionate withdrawal policy covers both physical and mental health.
University Police emphasizes victim assistance in their response to reports of crime. If you need immediate help for a crisis situation please call: 502-852-6111 or 911 (on campus) or 1-877-803-7577 (in the community). (University Police will call PEACC if a student asks for assistance.)
