Supportive measures are individualized services, accommodations, or other assistance the Title IX Coordinator can put in place after receiving notice of alleged sexual misconduct. We want community members to be safe, to receive appropriate medical attention, and to get the help they need to continue to access their educational and professional pursuits at Arkansas Tech University.
Some possible supportive measures are listed below. Not all of the measures listed will be necessary in every case, and the list is not exhaustive. Each case is very different, and the Title IX Coordinator works with the involved party(ies) to identify what supportive measures are appropriate to ensure equal access to educational programs, activities, and/or work. These measures are available whether or not an individual chooses to file a formal complaint and whether or not an investigation has commenced. Supportive measures are available for both Complainants and Respondents.
If at any point during the complaint, investigative or disciplinary processes, the Title IX Coordinator reasonably believes that a Respondent who is a member of the University community poses a substantial threat of harm to any member of the campus community; threatens or endangers University property; or disrupts the stability and continuance of normal University operations and functions, the Title IX Coordinator may take actions such as the following:
These actions may be appealed by student Respondents to the Vice President for Student Affairs and by employees to the respective Vice President or Athletic Director over their division.
