Pregnant and Parenting Rights

Students who need accommodation for their pregnancy or pregnancy-related condition should notify the Title IX office who will provide notice to the students' professors of their need for an interim measure.  Students are encouraged to work with their professors and the university’s support systems to devise a plan for how to best address the conditions as the pregnancy progresses, anticipate the need for leaves, minimize the academic impact of their absence, and get back on track as efficiently and comfortably as possible.  The Title IX Coordinator will assist with plan development and implementation as needed. 

Students are encouraged to work with their faculty members and their advisors to reschedule course assignments, lab hours, examinations, or other requirements, and/or to reduce their overall course load, as appropriate, once authorization is received from the Title IX office.  If, for any reason, caretaking/parenting students are not able to work with their faculty members/advisors to obtain appropriate modifications, students should alert the Title IX office as soon as possible, and the office will help facilitate needed accommodations. 

Please use the Office of Title IX and Clery Compliance's Pregnant and Parenting Rights Complaint Form to notify the Title IX coordinator of problems associated with your interim measure.
