Supportive Measures

Supportive Measures are individualized services, accommodations, and other assistance that the College offers to any students or employees and may be put in place without fee or charge.

Supportive Measures are designed to restore or preserve equal access to the College’s programs and activities, protect the safety of all parties and the College’s educational environment, and/or deter Prohibited Conduct, without being punitive or disciplinary in nature or unreasonably burdening the other party.

Supportive Measures are available regardless of whether the matter is reported to the College for the purpose of initiating a proceeding under College policy and before, after, and regardless of whether a Formal Complaint is filed. A Reporter who requests Supportive Measures has the right to file a Formal Complaint, either at the time the Supportive Measure is requested or at a later date. The College will also implement Supportive Measures for Respondents as requested and appropriate.

Supportive Measures may include, but are not limited to, the following to the extent reasonably available and appropriate:

  • Housing measures, such as requiring a Student to relocate College housing assignment pending the outcome of a conduct investigation or proceeding. This may also include facilitating changes from an on-campus housing location to alternate housing, and assistance in exploring alternative housing off-campus.
