- ACCOMMODATIONS BASED UPON SEXUAL ASSAULT
The University is committed to offering reasonable academic accommodations to students who are victims of sexual assault. Students are eligible for accommodation regardless of whether they seek criminal or disciplinary action. Depending on the specific nature of the allegation, such measures may include but are not limited to: implementation of a no-contact order, course/classroom assignment changes, and other academic support services and accommodations. If the student needs to request such accommodations, please direct requests to Kim Webb (email@example.com), Director of the Relationship and Sexual Violence Prevention Center. Ms. Webb is a confidential resource; however, requests for accommodations will be shared with the appropriate University administration and faculty. The University will maintain as confidential any accommodations or protective measures provided to an individual student so long as it does not impair the ability to provide such measures.If a student comes to me to discuss or disclose an instance of sexual assault, sex discrimination, sexual harassment, dating violence, domestic violence or stalking, or if I otherwise observe or become aware of such an allegation, I will keep the information as private as I can, but as a faculty member of Washington University, I am required to immediately report it to my Department Chair or Director or directly to Ms. Jessica Kennedy, the University’s Title IX Coordinator. If a student would like to speak with the Title IX Coordinator directly, Ms. Kennedy can be reached at (314) 935-3118, firstname.lastname@example.org, or by visiting her office in Umrath Hall Room 001.
