Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Center

Outline of an umbrella

In addition to the advocacy and support resources noted in this resource guide, the university also has
resources to help those who have experienced sexual assault, domestic/dating violence, or stalking obtain
reasonably available protective measures. These measures are available regardless of whether the person who requests them files a complaint with the university or through the criminal justice system.

Court-Ordered Personal Protection Orders

The University has staff who can provide information about obtaining court-ordered personal protection orders and who may be able to assist individuals in obtaining such orders. Please contact either SAPAC (734) 936-3333 or U-M DPSS 911 or (734) 763-1131 for assistance. SAPAC and U-M DPSS can also assist with safety planning.
If you obtain a court-ordered personal protection order, please let U-M DPSS 911 or (734) 763-1131 know and provide them with a copy. The university will uphold such lawfully issued orders and enforce them through U-M DPSS.


Other Protective Measures

A wide variety of other protective measures are available, including:
• Academic accommodations, such as rescheduling exams, adjusting class schedules to avoid contact with the respondent, etc.
• Change in living arrangements, such as changing floors or residence halls
• Change in work situation, such as relocation to provide a more private or secure location, additional security measures, etc.
• No contact instructions (to instruct the respondent to stop all attempts at communication or other interaction)
• Change in transportation arrangements, such as parking in a different location
• Assistance in reporting to on- or off-campus law enforcement or in initiating university disciplinary proceedings
