Supportive Measures

Supportive Measures are non-disciplinary, non-punitive individualized services, accommodations, and other assistance that the university may put in place for Complainants, Respondents, and occasionally to third parties without fee or charge.  Supportive measures are designed to restore or preserve access to the university’s education programs and activities and protect the safety of all parties and the university’s educational environment while not being punitive in nature or unreasonably burdening any party. 


Supportive measures are available to you regardless of whether you choose to file a formal complaint or seek a formal resolution of your complaint. 


Some examples may include:

  • Facilitating access to counseling and medical services;
  • Guidance in obtaining a sexual assault forensic examination;
  • Assistance in arranging rescheduling of exams and assignments and extensions of deadlines;
  • Academic support;
  • Assistance in requesting long-term academic accommodations through Disability Support Services (DSS) if the individual qualifies as an individual with a disability;
  • Change in class schedule, including the ability to transfer course sections or withdraw from a course;
  • Changes to university work schedules and/or job assignments
  • Mutual No Contact Order
