Supportive and Remedial Measures
The Title IX Officer will consult with the Complainant and, when appropriate, the Respondent, to identify suitable services, accommodations and other measures. This means that Supportive and Remedial Measures may be available to both the Complainant and Respondent. The Title IX Officer is ultimately responsible for determining what measures are appropriate in any given case. For more information about how these measures are determined, please continue on to the second to last section of this page.
In addition to Supportive and Remedial measures, the Title IX Officer may take other actions to stop reported conduct, prevent its escalation or recurrence, and address its effects.It is important to note that campuses may take other measures per other University policies.
For more information, see UC Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment Policy, Section V.A.5 and Appendix III.
please contact your CARE advocate, the Respondent Services Coordinator assigned to a matter, and/or HDAPP.
Supportive Measures include both Interim Measures and Mitigating Measures. The University provides Supportive Measures as appropriate and reasonably available, without fee or charge. These are the primary measures taken by HDAPP with informal resolutions.
- Interim Measures
- Services, accommodations, or other measures put in place temporarily after the Title IX Officer receives a report of Prohibited Conduct to assist or protect the Complainant, the Respondent, or the University community; restore or preserve a party’s access to a University program or activity; or deter Prohibited Conduct. Interim measures may:
o remain in place until the final outcome of a Resolution Process (see Section V.A.5) or a subsequent disciplinary or appeal process;
o change or terminate depending on the parties’ evolving needs, as assessed by the Title IX Officer; or
o become permanent as part of the resolution of a report.
- Mitigating Measures
- Services, accommodations or other measures for a Complainant who is not in a Resolution Process (see Section V.A.5), including a Complainant who was previously in a Resolution Process that did not result in a finding of a policy violation. Mitigating measures may be implemented to provide support, restore or preserve access to a University program or activity, or deter Prohibited Conduct.
Services, accommodations, or other measures put in place as a result of a completed Resolution Process (see Section V.A.5).
Determining Supportive & Remedial Measures

- Supportive Measures
- The Title IX Officer will tailor the measures to the circumstances of each case, minimize burdens on the parties, and avoid depriving the parties of educational and employment opportunities as much as practicable.
