Kaiser Permanente Bernard J. Tyson School of Medicine offers individualized support to members of the school community who may have experienced or been exposed to episodes of prohibited conduct, including sexual harassment and sexual assault.
Supportive measures are non-disciplinary, non-punitive, individualized services offered as appropriate and reasonably available, and without fee or charge to the parties. These measures are designed to restore or preserve access to the school’s education program or activity, protect the safety of all parties or the school’s educational environment, and deter prohibited conduct.
The school’s Title IX Coordinator works with students, faculty, and staff to ensure that supportive measures are tailored to address the parties’ needs. It is important to know that you do not have to make a formal complaint with the Title IX Coordinator to receive this type of support.
The school will maintain the privacy of any individual receiving supportive measures, provided that this privacy does not impair the school’s ability to offer the supportive measures.
Supportive measures, based on the circumstances, may include:
- Referral to counseling, medical, and/or other healthcare services
- Referral to the Employee Assistance Program
- Referral to community-based service providers
- Education to the individual and or the community, including but not limited to site or group assignments
