Accommodations

Northwestern is committed to remediating the impact that sexual misconduct, stalking, or dating or domestic violence has on a student's educational experience and strives to prevent its recurrence. The Deputy Title IX Coordinator can work with any student to provide/request accommodations to reduce the impact of this experience. Some accommodations can be put in place long term while others are used temporarily while a student is seeking longer term resolution.

These accommodations may include:

  • Changes in academic/class assignments or schedules
  • Changes in living arrangements (including requests to move within on campus housing as well as requests to provide temporary or long term on campus housing to students who reside off campus)
  • Changes to work or research schedules or assignments
  • Assistance in requesting academic allowances
  • Issuance of a formal request that a student cease current behaviors
  • Issuance of a "No Contact Directive", a formal request that the Northwestern community members involved in an incident have no contact with one another

To request these accommodations please contact a CARE Advocate or the appropriate Title IX Coordinator:

  • If the responsible party is a Northwestern University student, contact Deputy Title IX Coordinator, Tara Sullivan, at tara.sullivan@northwestern.edu or 847.467.5078.
  • If the responsible party is a Northwestern University faculty or staff member or a third party vendor, contact Title IX Coordinator, Joan Slavin, at titleixcoordinator@northwestern.edu or 847.491.3745.
