There are options at the complainant’s request for accommodations, providing such accommodations are reasonably available, to be made in campus living, academic environment, and on-campus employment environment to protect the complainant from encountering the respondent and to help ensure the complainant’s safety. Stay-away orders may also be issued to the respondent by University Police or Conduct and Accountability. This assistance is available regardless of whether the complainant reports the crime to law enforcement, files informal complaints, or files formal complaints.
The University prohibits any kind of retaliation against anybody involved in a sexual assault, domestic or relationship violence, or stalking case. This non-retaliation policy is explained during the initial contact with all involved in the case.
The University is obligated to protect the entire campus community. Therefore, in some cases protective measures include issuing public safety alerts based on information provided by the complainant and/or any witnesses. The complainant’s name and other personally identifiable information will not be included in public safety alerts.
