As part of the University’s response to a report of sexual misconduct, and regardless of whether there has been a request for formal disciplinary or law enforcement action, the University may impose interim measures or offer accommodations to address issues that impact the reporting and accused students’ educational, living, or work environments. These interim measures can often be put in place very quickly, prior to the resolution of any referral or criminal proceeding. Once imposed, the University will take necessary action to enforce the implemented measures. Anyone who becomes aware of, or has a concern about, a student’s failure to follow any University-imposed interim measure or accommodation should report this concern to the Student Conduct Officer.
To quickly address a situation, the University, where it determines it is appropriate, may impose a wide range of interim measures, such as:
- Implementation of a “No Contact Order”;
- Assistance with academic accommodations;
- Change in University-related work schedules or job assignments;
- Change in University-owned housing;
- Assistance from University staff in completing housing relocation;
- Assistance in addressing off-campus living arrangements; and
- Restricting a student’s access to certain University facilities or activities pending resolution of a matter.
Please contact Title IX if you have a need for interim measures. We can assist in supportive measures, even if the party does not wish to file a formal complaint.
If you are a faculty or staff member and receive a request from Title IX about assisting with interim measures, more information on this process can be found in this document.
