Supportive Measures

Supportive measures are designed to restore or preserve equal access to the college’s educational and working programs or activities without unreasonably burdening the other party, including measures designed to protect the safety of all parties and the broader college community, or deter sexual misconduct and sex-based discrimination.

 

While a supportive measure may impose some restrictions on a party, it will not unreasonably burden them. The college may provide supportive measures to the complainant or respondent, as appropriate, as reasonably available, and will do so without fee or charge, regardless of whether the complainant seeks formal disciplinary action.

 

Once supportive measures are approved, the parties or affected individuals will be notified in writing of the supportive measures.

 

The college will maintain any supportive measures provided to the complainant or respondent as confidential to the extent possible.

Supportive measures may include:

  • counseling

  • extensions of deadlines/course related adjustments

  • modifications of work/class schedules

  • campus escort services

  • mutual restrictions on contact between parties

  • changes in work/housing locations

  • leaves of absence

  • increased security/monitoring of campus locations
