Supportive Measures and Resources

Upon receiving a report or a Formal Complaint, the Title IX Coordinator will promptly offer Supportive Measures to the parties designed to restore or preserve access to the University’s education program, activity, or work environment. Supportive Measures are non-disciplinary, non-punitive individualized services offered as appropriate, as reasonably available, and without fee or charge and can include actions deemed necessary to protect the well-being of the individuals involved in cases of sexual harassment, as well as the educational environment of the University community. These Supportive Measures may include but are not limited to:

  • counseling,
  • mutual no contact orders,
  • relocating residence hall assignments,
  • restricting access to certain campus buildings,
  • changes to class schedules, assistance with rescheduling an academic assignment (paper, exam, etc.),
  • tutoring support, changes to work schedules/situations,
  • changes to work locations,
  • leaves of absences,
  • transportation assistance and escorts to and from campus locations,
  • increased security and monitoring of certain areas,
  • and other measures for safety as necessary.
