Protective Measures and Accommodations for Reporting Individuals

What kinds of protective measures might SU put in place to protect someone who reports sexual misconduct?

SU will put into place reasonable measures to protect a reporting individual or others and to remedy an unsafe or hostile environment. Protective measures can be taken immediately, while an investigation is still ongoing.  Protective measures may be implemented on an interim, or temporary basis, but may also be made permanent.  Examples of protective measures SU may take include, but are not limited to: a no-contact order, safe-space zones, residence hall relocation, adjustment of course schedules or employment, a leave of absence, transportation arrangements, or reassignment to a different supervisor or position. These measures may be applied to one, both, or multiple parties involved.

Who should a student or employee contact to request protective measures?

A SU student may contact, Sheila Johnson-Willis, the Title IX Coordinator, at 315-443-0211 or mailto:sjohnson@syr.edu the Office of Student Rights & Responsibilities, or DPS to request a No Contact Order (NCO).
