Support Services

Sexual assault and sexual misconduct disrupt a student’s access to educational programs and activities. George Fox University is committed to restoring access through a timely and fair grievance process and through providing appropriate supportive measures and support services.

Support Services vs. Supportive Measures

Title IX defines supportive measures as individualized services reasonably available that are nonpunitive, non-disciplinary, and not unreasonably burdensome to the other party while designed to ensure equal educational access, protect safety, or deter sexual harassment. When a complainant makes a report to the Title IX Coordinator, the Title IX Coordinator will assess the individual situation and coordinate the appropriate supportive measures for both the complainant and respondent.

Support Services are other avenues available both on and off campus that provide support to students who have experienced sexual misconduct regardless of whether they choose to make a report.

Confidential Support

The following departments and individual employees provide confidential on-campus support and assistance for all complainants and respondents of sexual assault regardless of whether a formal report has been made:
