Supportive Measures

CWRU will offer and implement appropriate and reasonable supportive measures to the parties upon notice of alleged sexual harassment,or retaliation.

Supportive measures are non-disciplinary, non-punitive individualized services offered as appropriate, as reasonably available, and without fee or charge to the parties to restore or preserve access to the the university’s education program or activity, including measures designed to protect the safety of all parties or the university’s educational environment, and/or deter harassment, discrimination, and/or retaliation.

The Title IX Coordinator or designee promptly makes supportive measures available to the parties upon receiving notice or a complaint. At the time that supportive measures are offered, the university will inform the Complainant, in writing, that they may file a formal complaint with the university either at that time or in the future, if they have not done so already. The Title IX Coordinator or designee works with the Complainant to ensure that their wishes are taken into account with respect to the supportive measures that are planned and implemented.

The university will maintain the privacy of the supportive measures, provided that privacy does not impair the University’s ability to provide the supportive measures. CWRU will act to ensure as minimal an academic/occupational impact on the parties as possible. The Recipient will implement measures in a way that does not unreasonably burden the other party.

Complainants can receive supportive measures without submitting a formal complaint. To request supportive measures, contact the Office of Equity at 216.368.3066.
