Supportive Measures

Supportive measures are individualized supports to help those who may have experienced incidents of sexual harassment or other sexual misconduct, including sexual assault, participate in campus life at Harvard and continue with their studies or work.

Supportive measures may be implemented at any time and may include:

  • Course-related extensions and adjustments
  • University-issued and enforced no contact orders
  • Work and/or course schedule adjustments
  • Changes in housing and seating
  • Leaves of absence
  • Increased monitoring of certain areas of the campus

These are just a few examples of supportive measures. Title IX Resource Coordinators work with students, faculty and staff to ensure that supportive measures are individually tailored to meet each individual’s unique needs. 

If you have questions about supportive measures, do not hesitate to reach out to your School or unit Title IX Resource Coordinator

It is important to know that you do not have to file a formal complaint with the University Title IX Coordinator or a report with HUPD in order to receive supportive measures.
