Seek Protective Measures

The Dean of Students Office (DOSO) can take administrative measures to help you feel safe on campus even if you are not interested in the formal disciplinary process.  Examples of protective measures include but are not limited to:

  • Administrative “No Contact” orders: Limit contact between individuals involved, including through social media and third parties.
  • Change of residence halls housing assignments:To ensure the safety and comfort of students in their living space, a student might be required to move to a different room, floor, or residence hall.  The complainant may also chose to move themselves, if they prefer that the accused not be alerted.
  • Change of course registration:To ensure the safety and comfort of students in their learning space, a student might be required to move to a different class or class section.  The University will exercise utmost discretion and will ensure that the student receives proper credit for all work completed before the change.  The complainant may also chose to move themselves, if they prefer that the accused not be alerted.
  • Restrictions for use of campus facilities or attendance at University-sponsored events:  To ensure the safety and comfort of students through campus and at University sponsored events, the university may place restrictions on access to facilities or attendance at events.
  • Request to faculty for consideration on course deadlines: While the university will not share specific details about the incident, the university will work with students and corroborate that the student is working through a difficult matter and ask the professor to consider their requests for accommodations as needed.  Note that the Dean of Students office has no authority to mandate that faculty grant requested accommodations.

Violating a protective measure may be basis for disciplinary action against the party that violated the restriction.  To request protective measures you may contact Maria Sevilla, Dean Priepke, or Nikki Abramson at 305-284-5353.
