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
