The University is committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of victim/survivors of sexual assault. A student who has been a victim of discrimination, harassment, or retaliation, including sexual misconduct, may request academic accommodation or change in residence after a report of sexual misconduct. Any individual who makes a request will receive appropriate and reasonable accommodations.
Possible accommodations may include the ability to change academic schedules or campus work schedules, withdraw from or retake a class without penalty, extensions on assignments and exams, and excused absences from class.
Pursuant to Title IX, in most cases of sexual violence or sex discrimination, the University will endeavor, to the extent practicable, to change the schedule or accommodations of the accused student prior to changing the schedule or accommodations of the victim.
In situations where it is necessary, the University will take immediate steps to protect complainants and respondents pending and after the final outcome of an investigation. These steps include the accommodations listed above and a change of residence hall assignments in addition to issuing no contact directives. Pending resolution of the complaint, the respondent may be prohibited from contacting the complainant, and may be placed on suspension or denied access to campus. The University may also change the course schedule for the respondent for student conduct disciplinary procedures related to acts of sexual misconduct.
