Supportive Measures

Supportive measures are non-punitive individualized services offered as appropriate, as reasonably available, and without fee or charge to the Complainant or the Respondent. Students, staff, and faculty are entitled to supportive measures whether you choose to file a formal complaint and can be requested at any time throughout a grievance process (if applicable).

Supportive measures are designed to restore or preserve equal access to education programs or activities without unreasonably burdening the other party, including measures designed to protect the safety of all parties or UNM’s educational environment, or deter harassment. Supportive measures may include academic accommodations, housing accommodations, campus escort services, no contact directives, counseling services, leave of absences, work schedule modifications, emergency removals, increased security and monitoring of certain areas of the campus, and other similar measures.

Supportive measures are available to the parties (Complainant and Respondent) and remain confidential, to the extent that maintaining such confidentiality does not impair UNM’s ability to provide the supportive measures. The Title IX Coordinator and/or Director of Equal Opportunity are responsible for coordinating the effective implementation of supportive measures, as appropriate. Confidential advocates may also assist in requesting various supportive measures.
