Supportive Measures

ISU offers individualized supportive measures, as appropriate and reasonably available, without fee or charge to complainants, respondents, and witnesses. These supportive measures are available before or after filing a formal complaint or where no formal complaint has been filed.

  • Modifications of work or class schedules
  • Campus escort services
  • Mutual restricted contact notices
  • Assistance in requesting no-contact orders or protective orders under Iowa law
  • Changes in work or housing or dining locations
  • Leaves of absence
  • Increased security or monitoring of certain campus areas
  • Referral to resources that can assist with financial aid, visa, and immigration concerns
  • Safety planning
  • Assistance in obtaining a sexual assault forensic exam
  • Assistance in contacting and filing a report with local law enforcement

Questions and requests concerning supportive measures should be directed to the Title IX Coordinator.
