Supportive Measures

How We Can Help

Clemson University provides an array of services for students, faculty and staff who have been affected by sexual assault, sexual misconduct, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking and conduct that creates a hostile environment. Title IX provides supportive measures that are individualized for survivors impacted by sexual harassment or other sexual misconduct to help address barriers they are facing in connection with their experience.

Examples of Supportive Measures

Supportive Measures may be implemented at any time and do not require a formal complaint to be filed. Supportive measures are customized to meet individual needs and circumstances. The following examples illustrate supportive measures at Clemson:

  • Counseling Services: Referral to a specialized CAPS program providing individual and group counseling services.
  • Housing Adjustments: The Title IX Office will work with University Housing to facilitate housing arrangements. In addition, the Title IX office may connect victims of domestic violence with housing resources offered by external resources.
  • Academic Assistance: Students are encouraged to contact the Title IX Coordinator if they feel their academics are being impacted.
  • No-contact orders: No-contact orders are available if a survivor feels intimidated or harassed by another person. A no-contact order is mutual and not disciplinary in nature. A no-contact order applies to all contact, including in person, on campus, off campus, social media and third parties.
  • Educational conversations: This conversation will discuss the impact of the behavior, Clemson expectations and Non-Discrimination and Anti-Harassment policy.
  • Training: Training of an identified community or group that has been identified as engaging in harmful behavior, or of which an identified individual is a member, may also be an available supportive measure.
