Upon receipt of a report or complaint, the Title IX Coordinator will promptly contact the alleged victim, who becomes the potential Complainant, to discuss the availability of supportive measures, consider the Complainant’s wishes with respect to supportive measures, inform the Complainant of the availability of supportive measures with or without the filing of a formal complaint, and explain to the Complainant the process for filing a formal complaint.
The Title IX Coordinator will engage in a meaningful dialogue with the Complainant to determine which supportive measures may restore or preserve equal access to education program or activity without unreasonably burdening the other Party, including measures designed to protect the safety of all Parties or the educational environment, or deter sexual harassment.
Supportive measures are non-disciplinary, non-punitive individualized services offered as appropriate, as reasonably available, and without fee or charge to the Party before or after the filing of a formal complaint or where no formal complaint has been filed. Examples of supportive measures include “no contact” orders, changes in class schedule, campus escorts, changes in residence hall assignments, and counseling. These measures will last throughout the grievance process or as designated by the Title IX Coordinator.
Supportive measures are available to both Complainants and Respondents.
