The new Title IX federal regulations go into effect on August 1, 2024. Here’s a student-friendly description of what they say about supportive measures… Appropriate supportive measures will be offered and coordinated to restore or preserve equal access to education, protect your safety and well-being, and deter further sex discrimination. Both complainants and respondents may receive them as part of a Title IX resolution process.

On our campus, these supportive measures may include:

  • Counseling
  • Deadline extensions
  • Contact restrictions applied to one or more parties
  • Academic accommodations
  • Class schedule changes
  • Housing moves
  • Work changes
  • Leaves of absence

These individualized measures are those that are reasonably available, non-punitive, non-disciplinary and not unreasonably burdensome to the other party. Your wishes will always be considered with respect to supportive measures. Please discuss the options with our Title IX Coordinator to see what’s possible.
