Academic Assistance

The Title IX Office can begin a conversation with instructors regarding absences and requests for assistance in a class. The availablility and types of assistance may depend on what the instructor deems appropriate. 

We do not contact professors unless we are given written permission from a student who is working with our office or another resource on campus. We also do not share with instructors information regarding why a student is working with our office or another resource on campus. 

Two-Way No Contact Orders

Students working with Title IX or other resources on campus may be able to receive a Two-Way No Contact Order if both parties are current JMU students and/or employees.

Two-Way means both parties are prohibited from communitcating with each other. This includes but is not limited to methods of communications that may be direct, through a third-party, or electronic. 

Referrals to Other Resources

The Title IX Office can refer students to our campus partners, including Victim Advocacy, the Counseling Center, the Health Center, the Dean of Students Office, the Office of Equal Opportunity, and other resource offices. 

We may also connect students with our community partners, such as the Collins Center in Harrisonburg, VA. 

For employees, we may refer individuals to Human Resources to learn about resources available through individual benefits package. We may also refer faculty to the faculty Ombudsperson. 

The Title IX Office can refer or connect any student or employee to law enforcement.
