Safe Environment

SLUH is deeply committed to ensuring the safety, security and well-being of its students, faculty and staff, as well as alumni, parents and guests who participate in the many activities that we sponsor. The school does not tolerate discrimination, sexual abuse, sexual activity, hazing or bullying, whether perpetrated by adults or students.

Providing the safest environment for students to learn and thrive is a top priority. The school conducts regular background checks on employees, and a check-in management system provides immediate background checks on visitors who come to campus during the school day. All employees and non-employed coaches and moderators are required to complete Protecting God’s Children, an education program sponsored by the Archdiocese of St. Louis focused on providing a safe and secure environment. A comprehensive campus security plan punctuates SLUH's commitment to safety and security.

Reporting Abuse

If anyone in our community has experienced abuse at SLUH or in connection with the school, or knows of any other such inappropriate conduct, they should contact local law enforcement or call the Missouri Department of Social Services Child Abuse Neglect Hotline at 1-800-392-3738. SLUH also encourages anyone with experiences or knowledge of abuse in connection with the school to contact Carol Brescia, LCSW, the Province’s victim assistance coordinator. Ms. Brescia is a therapist who has experience working with victims and survivors of trauma and can reached confidentially at 314-915-7168 or at ucsoutreach@jesuits.org.
