Lander University will offer and implement appropriate and reasonable supportive measures to the Parties upon notice of alleged harassment, discrimination, and/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 Lander University’s education program or activity, including measures designed to protect the safety of all Parties or Lander University’s educational environment, and/or deter harassment, discrimination, and/or retaliation.

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

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

These actions may include, but are not limited to:

  • Referral to counseling, medical, and/or other healthcare services.
  • Referral to the Employee Assistance Program.
  • Referral to community-based service providers.
  • Visa and immigration assistance.
  • Student financial aid counseling.
  • Education to the community or community subgroup(s).
  • Altering campus housing assignment(s).
  • Altering work arrangements for employees or student-employees.
  • Safety planning.
  • Providing campus safety escorts.
  • Providing transportation accommodations.
  • Implementing contact limitations (no contact orders) between the Parties.
  • Academic support, extensions of deadlines, or other course/program-related adjustments.
