Interim Measures Options

Interim measures mean steps the University may take before the final outcome of an investigation to ensure equal access to its education programs and activities and to protect the complainant and the rest of the campus community as necessary. Interim measures may include, but are not limited to:

1. providing support services to the complainant;

2. separating the complainant’s and respondent’s academic, living or work situations;

3. ordering the respondent not to have any contact with the complainant;

4. providing increased security at the locations or activities where misconduct occurred;

5. offering escort services to the complainant;

6. placing the respondent on an interim suspension from housing or the entire campus; and

7. other measures as determined on a case-by-case basis.

Interim measures remain in place until the case has been investigated and resolved or until lifted by the appropriate University official or designee. The decision about whether particular interim measures are appropriate and when they should be lifted will be made by:

1. the Dean of Students or designee when the respondent is an undergraduate student;

2. the Associate Vice Provost for Graduate and Professional Education or designee if the respondent is a graduate student;

3. the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs or designee if the respondent is a faculty member;

4. the Director, Employee Relations or designee if the respondent is a staff member; and

5. the Title IX Coordinator or designee if the respondent is a volunteer, visitor or vendor.
