Interim Measures

Interim Measures or other actions that the University may take when it has been made aware of an alleged or potential violation of the Policy will vary depending upon the specific circumstances. Possible Interim Measures available to a University Community Member may include, but are not limited to, one or more of the following:

(A)    No Contact Orders

A no contact order is a directive from the University to an individual instructing that individual to refrain from any intentional contact, direct or indirect, with one or more designated persons or group(s) through any means, including personal contact, electronic, telephone, or third parties. All individuals issued a no contact order are held responsible for following the directive. Violating a no contact order can result in disciplinary action pursuant to the generally applicable University policies and procedures.

(B)    Reassignments or Removal

The University reserves the right to temporarily remove a student from a classroom or University owned or operated housing in the event that is it deemed necessary to protect the health and safety of the University community or the integrity of an investigation. All measures will be made to prevent the disturbance of a moved student’s academic studies when possible.

(C)    Campus Restrictions

A limitation is placed upon selected privileges for a specific period of time. Campus restrictions may include, but may not be limited to, denial of the right to represent the University, a denial of the use of University facilities, or access to areas of Campus, or denial from participation in co-curricular activities.

(D)    Interim Suspension

During an interim suspension, students, faculty, or staff may be denied access to University premises and/or all University activities or privileges for which the student might otherwise be eligible, as may be deemed appropriate. In the event an individual is subject to an interim suspension pending the outcome of a formal investigation/resolution process under these Procedures, that interim suspension will comport with the generally applicable policies and procedures regarding temporary or interim suspensions.

(E)    Temporary Delay of Graduation or Other Academic Progress

If warranted, the University may temporarily delay a Responding Party’s graduation or awarding of a degree in the event the alleged prohibited conduct occurred while the Reporting Party was a student and the resolution process or appeals, as outlined in these Procedures is still ongoing.

Orders of Protection or Restraining Orders

The University will comply with all validly issued restraining or protective orders. Individuals interested in obtaining an Order of Protection, or any other order issued by a court must pursue that option through the courts on their own behalf.

ACOVA also provides a clinic to assist individuals with securing a protection order. . An individual who has obtained valid order of protection or restraining order should provide a copy to OIE and the Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office in Administration Building – suite 108.
