Interim measures may be both supportive and protective in nature. Supportive and protective measures are those services, accommodations, and other assistance the University puts in place after receiving notice of Prohibited Conduct, but before any final outcomes (investigatory, disciplinary, or remedial) have been determined. During the initial intake meetings with the parties, witnesses, or other impacted community members, OIE will discuss interim measures. If an individual is interested in interim measures, the Title IX Coordinator generally refers the individual to the DOS, which determines what interim measures are possible and brings a recommendation to the Title IX Coordinator for approval. Once the interim measures are approved, the DOS coordinates and notifies the parties or affected individuals in writing of the interim measures. There may be some interim measures, such as a no contact order, that the Title IX Coordinator approves without consultation of the DOS and informs the DOS of the interim measure(s) for implementation.
