It is not necessary to file a formal complaint with Middlebury, participate in a Middlebury adjudication process, or file a criminal complaint with local law enforcement in order to request help from Middlebury. We will provide assistance to help you access support services and accommodations, which include but are not limited to the following:

  • Academic Accommodations: If your experience is compromising your ability to meet your academic obligations, Middlebury may be able to provide you with support options. These may include but are not limited to assignment deadline extensions, work group adjustments, course changes or late drops, incompletes, or other arrangements as appropriate.


  • No Contact Orders and No Trespass Notices: No Contact Orders (NCOs) are Middlebury’s nondisciplinary measures to prevent two or more individuals from communicating directly or indirectly with each other. In most cases, NCOs are put in place at the request of one or both parties, but in some circumstances, Middlebury may put one in place to preserve the safety of both parties and other community members. A No Trespass Notice (NTN) prohibits the presence of an individual on Middlebury property, and on properties on which Middlebury programs are occurring. Violating an NTN or an NCO is a violation of Middlebury policy. NTNs are legally enforceable; a violation may therefore also lead to arrest and prosecution.


  • Residential Accommodations: For persons living in Middlebury housing, these accommodations may include arranging for new housing, or providing temporary housing options, as appropriate. Temporary accommodations may sometimes include providing a second residential space for an individual to access on a short-term basis for additional privacy.


  • Visa and Immigration Assistance: If you  have  questions or concerns about how your experience and needs may intersect with your visa and/or immigration status, please contact the Civil Rights and Title IX Office or International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) for more information.


  • Student Financial Aid Assistance: If you have questions or concerns about the impact of your experience on your student financial aid, please contact the Civil Rights and Title IX Office or Student Financial Services for more information.


  • Disability-Related Needs: If you have a disability and have related concerns about your needs with regard to your experience, please share them with any of the resources on pages 20–23, as well as with the Civil Rights and Title IX Office or Disability Resource Center (students) or Human Resources (employees).


  • Advocacy Support:
    • MiddSafe advocates are trained students who provide free and confidential support, information, referrals, and advocacy in person, via the hotline, and online through the advocate website.
    • WomenSafe advocates offer similar and expanded services for Addison County residents of all gender identities and sexual orientations. SafeSpace advocates provide free and confidential emotional support, advocacy, and resources for LGBTQ+ survivors of violence and discrimination.


  • Additional Measures: Middlebury can make other arrangements, such as changing transportation or working arrangements or providing other employment accommodations, on a case-by-case basis to provide individuals with distance from another party or to meet related needs.

If you would like to request these or any other accommodations or assistance, please contact the Civil Rights and Title IX Office. Students may also reach out to their Dean of Student Life, or a program director. All employees may also contact Human Resources. Faculty members who need assistance may choose to contact the Dean of the Faculty or Provost. Each request will be evaluated and responded to after appropriate consultation, as needed. Factors to be considered may include the following:

  • the specific need expressed by the party;
  • the severity and/or pervasiveness of the allegations;
  • any continuing effects on the party;
  • whether the parties share the same residence hall, dining hall, class, extracurricular activities, transportation and/or job location;
  • whether other judicial measures have been taken to protect a party or the parties; and whether other measures are reasonably available to support the individual.

When an individual reportedly subjected to sexual assault, domestic or dating violence, or stalking makes a request for accommodations like those described above, Middlebury will consider the request and provide those supportive measures which are reasonably available and reasonably allow for the preservation or restoration of access to or participation in Middlebury programs. Middlebury will maintain as confidential any services, accommodations, or protective measures provided to complainants, to the extent that maintaining such confidentiality would not impair Middlebury’s ability to provide them.
