Supportive Measures

Mid, through the Title IX Coordinator, will offer and implement supportive measures to either the Complainant or the Respondent regardless of whether a Formal Complaint is filed. Supportive measures are free non-disciplinary, non-punitive services offered to the Complainant or Respondent as appropriate and reasonably available. When establishing supportive measures for the Complainant, the Title IX Coordinator will also review the Complainant’s rights under College policy to file a formal Complainant, either presently or at a future date.

In applying supportive measures, any services that are provided to either the Complainant or the Respondent will be kept confidential unless disclosure is necessary to provide the service. Supportive measures restore or preserve equal access to the College’s education program or activity without unreasonably burdening the other Party. They are designed to protect the safety of all Parties, the College’s educational environment, and/or deter sexual harassment.

Examples of Supportive Measure may include, but are not limited to:

  • Referral to confidential resources, including counseling and other mental-health services; the Employee Assistance Program for employees, and community-based service providers
  • Extension of deadlines or other course-related adjustments
  • Modifications of work or class schedule
  • Campus escort services
  • Mutual restrictions on contact between the Parties
  • Change in work location
  • Leave of absence
  • Increased security monitoring of certain areas of the campus
  • Information regarding the availability of counseling, health, victim advocacy, legal assistance, visa and immigration assistance, student financial aid, and other services available both on-campus and through off-campus external agencies
  • Issuance of a Timely Warning, per the Clery Act
  • Any other actions deemed reasonable and appropriate by the Title IX Coordinator.
