Individuals who feel that they have experienced sexual misconduct are encouraged to work with Confidential Resources. Support resources are available to members of the University community regardless of where or when the misconduct occurred or who else was involved.
The Office of Gender Equity and Title IX Administration is available to discuss resources and accommodations that may be helpful. Requests for accommodations/interim measures may also be coordinated by an undergraduate complainant’s director of student life (DSL) or by a dean at the Graduate School if the complainant is a graduate student.
Accommodations (also called Interim Measures in the Sex Discrimination and Sexual Misconduct policy) are available to those who feel they have experienced sexual misconduct to ensure that their educational or workplace experience is preserved; these measures are available both to those who proceed with formal investigations and those who choose not to do so.
Accommodations/interim measures may include:
- Access to counseling services and assistance in arranging an initial appointment;
- Rescheduling of exams and assignments;
- Change in class schedule, including the ability to transfer course sections or withdraw from a course;
- Change in work schedule or job assignment;
- Change in campus housing;
- Providing medical services;
- Imposition of an on-campus “no contact order," an administrative remedy designed to curtail contact and communications between two or more individuals; and/or
- Any other measure that can be used to achieve the goals of this policy.
