VI. Supportive Measures
Supportive Measures are designed to restore or preserve equal access to a Complainant’s and Respondent’s educational program or activity without unreasonably burdening the other party.
The Complainant’s Home Institution Title IX Coordinator shall, upon becoming aware of alleged Sexual Harassment, promptly contact the Complainant if their identity is known to discuss the availability of Supportive Measures as well as other rights and options in accordance with the Institution’s policies. Supportive Measures shall be offered to the Complainant regardless of whether they wish to file a Formal Complaint. In implementing any Supportive Measures, the Title IX Coordinator shall consider the Complainant’s wishes.
The Respondent’s Home Institution Title IX Coordinator shall offer Supportive Measures to a Respondent upon notification to the Respondent that there has been a Formal Complaint, or earlier as appropriate if a Respondent is aware of a potential complaint against them.
Supportive Measures provided to a Complainant or Respondent shall remain confidential to the extent that maintaining such confidentiality will not impair the Institution’s ability to provide the Supportive Measures. For complaints involving parties from more than one Institution, each party’s Home Institution Title IX Coordinator shall promptly notify the other party’s Home Institution Title IX Coordinator of any Supportive Measures implemented on behalf of a party or witness. This information will not be shared with the other party unless it specifically impacts that party. If there is disagreement about whether information about a specific supportive measure for one party will be shared with the other party, the parties’ Home Institution Title IX Coordinators shall confer with the TCC Title IX Administrator.
Supportive Measures may include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Extensions of deadlines or other course-related adjustments, in coordination with the relevant Faculty member
- Modifications of work or class schedules, in coordination with the relevant Faculty member and/or supervisor
- Campus escort services
- Mutual restrictions on contact between the parties
- Changes in work or housing locations
- Leaves of absence
- Increased security and monitoring of certain areas of campus
- Other similar measures determined by the parties’ Home Institution Title IX Coordinator(s) based on the specific facts of each case
