Interim Measures and Remedies

The Title IX Coordinator (or designee) may enact interim measures or remedies to address the short or long term effects of any prohibited conduct within this policy, and to prevent further harassment, discrimination, retaliation, or other violations of this policy. Remedies available will be discussed with Reporting and Responding parties as well as witnesses. The Title IX Coordinator (or designee), in conjunction with other University offices when needed, will determine necessity and scope of any interim remedies or measures on case by case basis.  Even if neither party requests protective action, the Title IX Coordinator (or designee) may enact interim measures at their discretion to ensure the safety of any individual, the broader University community, or the integrity of the investigative process.


Interim remedies and measures can include but are not limited to:

  • Assistance with connection to Counseling Services, the Truitt Center for Religious & Spiritual Life, and medical assistance through Health Services.
  • Access to a confidential support advocate for Reporting Party.
  • Access to a process advocate for Responding Party.
  • Assistance with connection to emergency rape crisis treatment and emergency medical services.

  • Interim Administrative Action –  The President, Provost/Vice President for Academic Affairs, Vice President for Business, Finance and Technology, Vice President for Student Life, or persons functioning under their direct authority, may impose Interim Administrative Action when a Responding Party is deemed to threaten the health, safety, or well-being of the Reporting Party or others, including the broader University Community, threatens or impairs the effective functioning of the University, or when a Responding Party has been charged with a serious criminal offense. Interim Administrative Actions include, but are not limited to, suspension from the University, removal from University housing, suspension of privileges, restriction of access when on-campus, and other similar measures.
    • Students shall have a prompt meeting (within 15 calendar days) with the Vice President for Student Life, or their designee, to review the behavior that forms the basis for Interim Administrative Action. This meeting may resolve the Interim Administrative Action, but does not serve as a substitute for the processes outlined within this process.
