Protective Measures and Accommodations

This slideshow is not enabled

The University is obligated to comply with a Complainant’s reasonable request for a living and/or academic situation change following an alleged sexual offense. The Title IX Coordinator and/or the Associate Vice President for Student Affairs (or designee) has the authority to take reasonable and prudent measures to protect the Complainant pending completion of any of the procedures outlined in the Policy and following a finding of responsibility. Protective measures and accommodations, where reasonably available, can be made regardless of whether the Complainant chooses to report the alleged incident to the University or law enforcement authorities. Protective measures and accommodations are designed to minimize the burden on the Complainant.

Protective measures and accommodations may include, where reasonably available,

  • administrative directives (i.e. no contact orders, removal from residence halls, or suspension of participation in extra-curricular activities)
  • interim suspensions
  • transportation assistance or security escorts
  • changes to academic, work, and/or dining schedules, housing, transportation
  • withdrawal or retaking of a class without penalty
  • access to academic support such as tutoring
  • a delay/suspension in the awarding of a degree and/or certifying graduation 

Factors that may be considered in providing protective measures and accommodations include, but are not limited to, the specific need expressed by the Complainant; the ages of the students involved; the severity or pervasiveness of the allegations; any continuing effects on the Complainant; whether the Complainant and Responding Party share the same residence hall, class, transportation or job location; and/or whether other judicial measures have been taken to protect the Complainant (i.e. civil protection orders).

The University will maintain as confidential any protective measures or accommodations provided to the Complainant, to the extent that maintaining such confidentiality would not impair the ability of the University to provide the protective measures or accommodations.

The University will notify the Complainant in advance if personally identifying information about the Complainant is necessary to obtain an accommodation or protective measure. The Complainant will be told what information will be shared, with whom and why.

The decision to disclose personally identifying information, when necessary, is the responsibility of the Title IX Coordinator and/or the Associate Vice President for Student Affairs (or designee). Only that information necessary to provide the accommodation or protective measures in a timely manner will be disclosed when necessary. Every effort will be made to limit access to this information in order to minimize the risk to a Complainant’s confidentiality.
