You have the right to receive supportive measures to ensure your safety and well-being. Supportive measures can be requested through the Title IX Office and can be imposed regardless of whether a criminal or College formal complaint has been filed.
Supportive measures may include, but are not limited to:
- Academic assistance, including deadline extensions, excused absences, and other accommodations provided by faculty without compromising your privacy
- Contact restrictions, or assistance in obtaining a Protection from Abuse (PFA) Order
- Housing changes
- Public Safety escorts, both on-campus and/or to off-campus appointments
- Referrals to medical or emergency services
- Voluntary leaves of absence
- Any other support that meets your immediate needs. Maybe that’s a bus ticket, a meal that reminds you of home, some animal therapy: just let us know.
Please refer to our Policy to read more about supportive measures.
