Emergency Removal

The University may remove a Respondent entirely or partially from its education program or activities on an emergency basis if an individualized safety and risk analysis is made, a determination is made that an immediate threat to the physical health or safety of any student or other individual arising from the allegations of sexual harassment, as defined in EP 1.204, justifies removal, and notice is provided to the Respondent and they are given an opportunity to challenge the decision immediately following the removal.

The University will implement the least restrictive emergency actions possible in light of the circumstances and safety concerns.

Where an emergency removal is imposed, the Respondent will be given an opportunity to meet with the Title IX Coordinator, and any other appropriate official, within twenty-four (24) hours of receiving notice of the emergency removal to explain why the action/removal should not be implemented or should be modified. A Respondent may be accompanied by an Advisor of their choice to the meeting.
