At any point in the reporting process, regardless of whether disciplinary action is pursued, the College may impose upon the respondent interim and safety measures to protect the complainant and the broader campus community.  These interim measures include, but are not limited to issuing an interim no contact directive, limiting access to campus facilities, interim removal from or reassignment of housing, interim removal from a course or course section reassignment, and interim suspension (in a case where there may be an imminent threat to an individual or the community).  Unless the report results in an investigation and formal action under the Sexual Misconduct Policy and/or other College policies, such interim measures shall be discontinued within an appropriate period of time depending on the facts of the particular case.

 

Complainants and/or others impacted by Sexual Misconduct may also take advantage of safety measures, such as temporarily moving to a safe room, changing residence halls, dropping a course or section reassignment.

 

Complainants and community members impacted by Sexual Misconduct may request safety and interim measures without making a formal Sexual Misconduct complaint to the Title IX Coordinator by contacting Colby’s confidential resource, Emily Schusterbauer, at eeschust@colby.edu.
