Supportive measures are non-disciplinary, non-punitive services offered to individuals involved in a report of sexual misconduct.
These measures may include counseling, extensions of deadlines or other course-related adjustments, modifications of work or class schedules, safety escorts on campus, 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, and other similar measures.
Supportive measures will be designed to meet the particular needs of each individual’s specific situation as appropriate, as reasonably available, and without fee or charge to the complainant or the respondent before or after the filing of a formal complaint or where no formal complaint has been filed. They are intended to restore or preserve equal access to the Institute’s education program or activity without unreasonably burdening the other party, including measures designed to protect the safety of all parties or our educational environment or to deter sexual misconduct.
Rensselaer will maintain as confidential any supportive measures provided to the complainant or respondent to the extent that maintaining such confidentiality does not impair our ability to provide the supportive measures.
To request supportive measures or accommodations, or for more information, please contact one of the Institute’s Title IX Coordinators.
