Supportive Measures

If you report sexual misconduct, Fort Lewis College can support your safety needs by:

  • Counseling
  • Extensions of deadlines or other course-related adjustments
  • Campus escort services
  • Increased security and monitoring of certain areas of the campus
  • Academic support
  • No contact restrictions between the two or more individuals.
  • Work or housing locations changes
  • Work or class schedule changes
  • Interim and/or mutual limitations on hours for using campus services.
  • Interim and/or mutual restriction from campus events/locations.

We can discuss other options, depending on your needs and the circumstances.


FLC Disciplinary Process

If you wish and Fort Lewis College agrees to pursue the incident as a disciplinary matter:

  • The College will make every effort to resolve the matter in a timely manner and in accordance with your wishes.
  • Retaliation against a participant in a disciplinary or criminal matter will not be tolerated.
  • Amnesty: The College’s primary concern is safety.  The use of drugs or alcohol never makes the victim at fault for sexual misconduct.  Complainants and witnesses will receive amnesty for drug or alcohol use that occurs in the same incident where sexual misconduct is alleged.
  • The College will keep participants in a disciplinary matter informed as it progresses.
  • Participants in a disciplinary matter can choose to provide information to an investigator or a hearing body without seeing or hearing from individual(s) accused of sexual misconduct.
