St. Louis: Gateway to the West
Chesterfield, Mo., in St. Louis County, the home of Logan, was chosen because of its central location. It is accessible by all modes of travel, being located on a major highway system and in close proximity to Lambert St. Louis International Airport. Logan’s campus provides the cosmopolitan flair of a large city, yet is located in a secluded environment on a sprawling, 112-acre wooded hillside in the suburban city of Chesterfield.
St. Louis, “The Gateway to the West,” is the home of the renowned Jefferson National Expansion Memorial-the famous Gateway Arch and Jefferson Memorial Museum. The beautiful riverfront area surrounding the monument preserves some of the historic landmarks of the area and provides new facilities that beautify and enhance the entertainment life of St. Louis. Busch Memorial Stadium, home of the professional baseball Cardinals, adjoins the riverfront. Nearby is the Edward Jones Dome, home of the St. Louis Rams professional football team. The Scottrade Center houses the St. Louis Blues professional hockey team. St. Louis has long been famous for its municipal opera, zoo, botanical gardens, art museums, symphony orchestra and riverfront excursions on the Mississippi.
St. Louis is a major industrial center, with its economy based on a variety of enterprises, including many high-tech businesses. This stable economy is valuable to students in offering many types of jobs in different fields.
St. Louis and Chesterfield offer the community opportunities of a large city, yet are known for friendly Midwestern hospitality.
Students are expected to conduct themselves in a manner befitting a professional institution at all times. Unprofessional conduct will not be tolerated.
A student may be suspended or dismissed for unsatisfactory conduct, poor scholarship, or for any other cause if it is considered to be detrimental to the interest of Logan or the profession of chiropractic.
Logan has long recognized that the professional growth and development of students is central to its educational mission and purpose. Consequently, Logan seeks to provide all students with an environment conducive to professional growth, academic achievement, and individual responsibility, fostering respect for the rights and privileges of others. Because conduct as a student often bears on or is ultimately reflective of professional suitability, Logan takes very seriously any misconduct or unprofessional behavior within its student community. Therefore, the administration, the faculty, and the student body have adopted the Honor Code. Additional information regarding the Honor Code is located in the Student Handbook.
Each trimester, it is determined whether students are maintaining a standard of academic and professional conduct acceptable for continued enrollment at Logan. The right to exclude students whose academic and/ or professional conduct is inappropriate, undesirable, unprofessional, or detrimental to Logan’s educational mission is a right reserved. The Administration reserves the right to exclude or dismiss any student at the request of the faculty, Professional Committee, Student Advancement Committee, Admissions, or at its own discretion. Lack of academic success and professional penalties are listed elsewhere in the Catalog and in the Student Handbook.
Logan prides itself in serving the student body in many ways. For more information on any of these resources, please visit the Logan website or contact the Dean of Students.
Logan offers a wide variety of recreational and social activities for students and their families. In addition, there are numerous clubs and organizations available for membership.
Additionally, Logan offers membership in a variety of technique, sport and other special interest clubs.

Additionally, no student on professional or academic probation may participate in non-academic club or intramural programs and activities.
Each trimester, students who make a significant contribution towards the betterment of the Logan community are recognized in a formal ceremony to honor their contributions of time, talents, dedication, service and energy.
The athletic program, headed by the Director of Sports and Activities, includes competition at the intramural, club and community levels. There are a variety of club and intermural sports offered based on student interest.
The Director of Sports and Activities is responsible for scheduling all activities, maintaining athletic inventory and providing news to the student body as to scheduled events and opportunities for athletic/recreational activities.
Logan encourages utilization of the work out facility within the Wellness Center and athletic fields by students. Requests for new activities and/or equipment items are reviewed each August, and funds are allotted for these requests based upon funds availability and administrative judgment. Inventory and supplies purchased by Logan are maintained by the Director of Sports and Activities and must be checked out for student use.

Logan will respond promptly and effectively to reports of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking, and will take appropriate action to prevent, to correct, and to discipline behavior that violates this policy.
1. Logan Uses State Definitions of Crimes Relating to Violence, Assault, Stalking, and Related Issues.
a. “Abuse” includes but is not limited to the occurrence of any of the following acts, attempts or threats against a person who may be protected pursuant to this chapter, except abuse shall not include abuse inflicted on a child by accidental means by an adult household member or discipline of a child, including spanking, in a reasonable manner:
- “Assault”, purposely or knowingly placing or attempting to place another in fear of physical harm;
- “Battery”, purposely or knowingly causing physical harm to another with or without a deadly weapon;
- “Coercion”, compelling another by force or threat of force to engage in conduct from which the latter has a right to abstain or to abstain from conduct in which the person has a right to engage;
- “Harassment”, engaging in a purposeful or knowing course of conduct involving more than one incident that alarms or causes distress to an adult or child and serves no legitimate purpose. The course of conduct must be such as would cause a reasonable adult or child to suffer substantial emotional distress and must actually cause substantial emotional distress to the petitioner or child. Such conduct might include, but is not limited to:
a) Following another about in a public place or places;
b) Peering in the window or lingering outside the residence of another; but does not include constitutionally protected activity;
- “Sexual assault”, causing or attempting to cause another to engage involuntarily in any sexual act by force, threat of force, or duress;
- “Unlawful imprisonment”, holding, confining, detaining or abducting another person against that person’s will;
b. “Adult”, any person seventeen years of age or older or otherwise emancipated;
c. “Child”, any person under seventeen years of age unless otherwise emancipated;
d. “Court”, the circuit or associate circuit judge or a family court commissioner;
e. “Domestic violence”, abuse or stalking committed by a family or household member, as such terms are defined in this section;
f. “Dating violence”, abuse or stalking committed by a person who has been in a romantic or intimate relationship with the victim. Whether a relationship exists will depend on the length, type, and frequency of interaction.
g. “Ex parte order of protection”, an order of protection issued by the court before the respondent has received notice of the petition or an opportunity to be heard on it;
h. “Family” or “household member”, spouses, former spouses, any person related by blood or marriage, persons who are presently residing together or have resided together in the past, any person who is or has been in a continuing social relationship of a romantic or intimate nature with the victim, and anyone who has a child in common regardless of whether they have been married or have resided together at any time;
i. “Full order of protection”, an order of protection issued after a hearing on the record where the respondent has received notice of the proceedings and has had an opportunity to be heard;
j. “Order of protection”, either an ex parte order of protection or a full order of protection;
k. “Pending”, exists or for which a hearing date has been set;
l. “Petitioner”, a family or household member who has been a victim of domestic violence, or any person who has been the victim of stalking, or a person filing on behalf of a child pursuant to section 455.503 who has filed a verified petition pursuant to the provisions of section 455.020 or section 455.505;
m. “Respondent”, the family or household member alleged to have committed an act of domestic violence, or person alleged to have committed an act of stalking, against whom a verified petition has been filed or a person served on behalf of a child pursuant to section 455.503;
n. “Stalking” is when any person purposely and repeatedly engages in an unwanted course of conduct that causes alarm to another person when it is reasonable in that person’s situation to have been alarmed by the conduct. As used in this subdivision:
- “Alarm” means to cause fear of danger of physical harm;
- “Course of conduct” means a pattern of conduct composed of repeated acts over a period of time, however short, that serves no legitimate purpose. Such conduct may include, but is not limited to, following the other person or unwanted communication or unwanted contact; and
- “Repeated” means two or more incidents evidencing a continuity of purpose.
o. “Sexual Consent” is defined as positive, unambiguous, and voluntary agreement to engage in specific sexual activity throughout a sexual encounter. Consent cannot be inferred from the absence of a “no;” a clear “yes,” verbal or otherwise, is necessary. Consent to some sexual acts does not constitute consent to others, nor does past consent to a given act constitute present or future consent. Consent must be ongoing throughout a sexual encounter and can be revoked at any time. Consent cannot be obtained by threat, coercion, or force. Agreement under such circumstances does not constitute consent.
Consent cannot be obtained from someone who is asleep or otherwise mentally or physically incapacitated, whether due to alcohol, drugs, or some other condition. A person is mentally or physically incapacitated when that person lacks the ability to make or act on considered decisions to engage in sexual activity. Engaging in sexual activity with a person whom you know, or reasonably should know, to be incapacitated constitutes sexual misconduct.

5. Confidentiality Is Maintained to the Extent Possible.
a. Logan will strive to protect, to the greatest extent possible, the confidentiality of persons reporting violations and of those accused.
b. Because Logan has an obligation to address sexual harassment, however, Logan cannot guarantee complete confidentiality where it would conflict with Logan’s obligation to investigate meaningfully or, where warranted, take corrective action.

a. Call someone who can help and support you, such as a friend or relative, the police (911), campus security (636-230-1986), or Logan’s Student Care Manager (636-230-1970) on campus, or H&H Health Associates ((800-832-8302) - Toll Free.

c. Please note that preserving evidence is critical to any investigation, so please contact the appropriate authorities as soon as possible after an incident occurs.
2. Filing a Complaint.
a. A complainant should contact the University’s Title IX Coordinator and Chief Student Conduct Officer at 636-230-1731 or (email@example.com). A formal complaint is not required to initiate an investigation. Any Title IX violation that becomes known by a mandated reporter or responsible employee will be investigated.
1) A mandated reporter / responsible employee is defined as any employee who has the authority to take action to redress harassment or has the duty to report harassment to appropriate official(s), or someone a student could reasonably believe has this authority.
b. A complainant is also encouraged to file a report with the Logan security office or the appropriate law enforcement agency by dialing 911. Logan provides round the clock security on campus 365 days a year, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, and may be reached by dialing 636-230-1986. A complainant may simultaneously pursue criminal and Logan disciplinary processes.
c. A complainant may allege other violations of the University Honor Code in addition to sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking. The University Honor Council may investigate and exercise jurisdiction over such complaints in their entirety as long as the additional charges arise out of the same set of facts and circumstances or are related to the alleged incident of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking.
3. Investigating a Complaint.
a. Upon receipt of a complaint against a student member (the “Respondent”) of Logan, the Title IX Coordinator and/or the Chief Student Conduct Officer, or their respective designee, may conduct an investigation or, at his/her discretion, request that Logan security or an independent investigative agent conduct such an investigation. Hereafter, references to “Investigator” will be taken to mean the Title IX Coordinator, Chief Student Conduct Officer, Logan security, or the independent investigative agent, as the case may be. The Investigator will commence an investigation within seven business days of notification.
b. Following the investigation, the Investigator will provide a written report to the chairperson of the University Honor Council within seven business days of concluding the investigation. The report shall be reviewed by the full Honor Council. The report will describe the relevant facts and circumstances learned during the course of the investigation into the complaint, and it will contain reports of all interviews conducted by the Investigator, but it will not set forth any conclusions as to whether those facts and circumstances constitute a violation of the Logan Honor Code.
c. After reviewing the report, the University Honor Council through its chairperson may request clarifications and additional investigation. When the report is complete, the parties will be given the opportunity to review the report and provide a written response, which will be provided to the Investigator, the University Honor Council, and the other party.
d. The Investigator’s final report will be provided to the University Honor Council, along with any written statements provided to the Investigator by parties or witnesses.
4. Adjudicating a Complaint.
a. The University Honor Council decides how Logan will resolve complaints referred to it by the University’s Title IX Coordinator and/or the Chief Student Conduct Officer, and may impose sanctions, including those identified in the University Honor Code, up to and including suspension and expulsion.
b. The University Honor Council will separately interview both parties as soon as practicable. Absent special circumstances, the Council’s interviews of the parties will normally take place within 10 business days following submission of the final report to the Council.
c.. Any individual complainant, respondent or witness may be accompanied by an individual “advisor” to provide support at any time during the investigation process. This “advisor” may consult and interact privately with the individual during student conduct proceedings, but may not perform any function in the process other than advising individual. The advisor may not make a presentation or represent the party during the process or proceeding. Notwithstanding, the advisor may not be a fact witness to the conduct at issue, will not be allowed to address the Council, and will not be allowed to interact or contact the Investigator or anyone on the Council while the complaint is pending.
d. At its sole discretion, the Council may rely upon the Investigator’s report and its interviews of the parties for its understanding of the relevant facts, or it may interview additional witnesses, whether or not such witnesses have previously been interviewed by the Investigator. The Council may also interview the Investigator.
e. Based upon the information provided in the final report, any written statements provided to the Council, and its own interviews of the parties and others, the Council will determine whether it is more likely than not based on a preponderance of the evidence that the Respondent violated the University Honor Code.
f. If the majority of the Council determines that the Respondent more likely than not violated the University Honor Code based on a preponderance of the evidence, the Council will impose sanctions, up to and including suspension or expulsion from Logan.
g. Absent special circumstances, the University’s investigation and interviews will be concluded, and the Council will issue a written decision notifying the parties of its determination as to whether there has been a violation within 60 days of the initial submission of the Complaint. The Respondent will be notified in writing of any sanctions imposed, and the Complainant will also be notified in writing of any sanctions, to the extent permitted by law. Both parties will be notified simultaneously in writing. The University will act in accordance with guidance from its general counsel in making such determinations.
5. Reviewing a Decision.
a. The parties may seek a review of the Council’s decision by the Vice President for Academic Affairs (VPAA) by submitting that request in writing within 14 calendar days of the Council’s issuance of its decision. The scope of such review shall be limited to determining: (i) whether the procedures set forth herein were fairly implemented, or (ii) whether any sanctions imposed are insufficient or excessive.
b. The VPAA may direct that the matter be remanded to the University Honor Council with specific instructions to address determinations as to procedural fairness. The VPAA may also reduce, modify, or increase the sanctions assessed by the Council. The decision of the VPAA is final.
c. In the event of the absence or disqualification of the VPAA, the review will be conducted by the Chairperson of the Faculty Council, or his or her designee.
d. Sanctions will be stayed pending the disposition of any review, except that a temporary suspension will remain in effect. If a hold has been placed on a student’s records, it will remain until final disposition of the complaint.
6. Further Action by the Title IX Coordinator.
At any point before, during, or after the investigation, and regardless of the Council’s or VPAA’s final decision, the Title IX Coordinator may determine that interim or remedial measures, directed at the parties, witnesses, or a broader University population, are necessary and appropriate to prevent and/or respond to sexual harassment or sexual iolence. Depending on the specific nature of the allegation, such measures may include, but are not limited to: implementation of a no-contact order, temporary course/classroom assignment changes, counseling services, academic support services and accommodations, etc.
7. Interim Suspension.
The Dean of Students, a Logan Vice President, or the Clinic Chief of Staff may impose an interim suspension if necessary, pursuant to the standard and procedures set forth under the University Honor System Section IV, Article IV. For purposes of these procedures, the suspending authority must take the appropriate steps to initiate the investigation provided for in these procedures within 5 business days of the date of the interim suspension. The suspension shall end when rescinded by the suspending authority, or upon failure of the suspending authority to initiate an investigation within the noted timeframe or, if not rescinded and if the investigation is initiated, when the decision by the University Honor Council and any decision on appeal to the Vice President for Academic Affairs, if applicable, is final.
8. Sexual Assault Support Resources.
a. Experiencing sexual or relationship violence can be an overwhelming and isolating experience. Sexual assault and relationship violence are traumatic experiences that can interrupt your life at home, work, and school. It can sometimes affect your relationships with friends and family. Many victims try to cope and manage their feelings on their own, which is a common response to dealing with such a painful and frightening experience.
b. Although we are not a crisis center, we can provide referrals by phone or in person. If you are in crisis and we are not open, please contact a hotline or talk to someone. Resources and contact information are below. If you are in danger please call 911. We are glad you are finding help.

Drug-Free College Campus
The possession, use, distribution or sale of narcotics or drugs, other than those medically prescribed, properly used, and in the original container, by students, faculty, staff or visitors on Logan property or while on Logan business is prohibited. Logan reserves the right to inspect Logan property and personal belongings if it has a reasonable suspicion that a student, staff member or faculty member is in violation of this policy.
Off-campus possession, use, distribution, or sale of narcotics or drugs by students, faculty or staff is inconsistent with Logan’s policies and goals, and therefore is prohibited. Any and all types of illegal drug paraphernalia, including but not limited to bongs, pipes, or any items modified or adapted so that they can be used to consume illegal drugs, are not permitted on Logan property.
Logan’s policy regarding use of alcohol is consistent with local, state and federal laws/regulations. The Alcohol Use Policy is presented in the Student Handbook and focuses on the responsible use of alcohol at all Logan events.
Alcohol and drug abuse prevention, counseling and treatment programs are coordinated through the Office of Student Affairs.
Concealed Weapons Policy
Logan strives to make the learning and work environment as safe as possible. To that end, Logan does not tolerate actual or threatened violence on its premises or when directed at a Logan staff member, faculty member, student, guest, or visitor on or off premises. Verbal or written threats of any kind, even in jest, will not be tolerated and may result in disciplinary action up to and including termination, expulsion, or removal from the premises pending investigation. Fighting or verbal threats will be dealt with promptly.
In a further effort to maintain a violence-free learning and work environment, Logan has adopted the following policy regarding firearms and concealed weapons: (1) firearms, concealed weapons and explosives are not allowed at any time on property owned or leased by Logan (including Logan owned or leased parking lots) or in vehicles owned or leased by Logan, or on the person of any faculty or staff member, student, visitor or guest while that individual is on Logan property; (2) firearms, concealed weapons and explosives are not allowed in the private vehicle of any faculty or staff member, student, visitor or guest of Logan while such vehicle is on Logan property; and (3) Logan reserves the right to search and/or inspect faculty and staff members, students, guests, and visitors, their personal belongings, and their vehicles located on Logan property if Logan believes it is necessary to enforce this policy.
Even though Missouri has passed a concealed weapons law, the law provides that one is not entitled to carry a concealed weapon into any higher education institution without the consent of the governing body of the higher education institution. Logan does not, under any circumstances, consent to carrying a concealed weapon on its property or to having a concealed weapon in vehicle while parked on Logan property. Only law enforcement officers or authorized security personnel are allowed to carry weapons on Logan property.
Any violation of this policy or any refusal to allow Logan to search and/or inspect one’s person, belongings, or vehicle while on Logan property will result in discipline up to and including termination of employment, suspension, expulsion or removal from the premises.
