Marquette University’s Stay Away Directives provide a mechanism to prohibit continued harassment and retaliation from occurring as a result of an alleged violation of the Marquette University’s Title IX Sexual Harassment, Discrimination and Sexual Misconduct Policy. When a Stay Away Directive is requested, it will be adjusted to address contact, presence, proximity and other aspects of safety as deemed necessary given the individual circumstances of each matter. Both parties to the Stay Away Directive shall comply with the requirements set forth in the Stay Away Directive.
It is the university’s expectation that the respondent will remove himself/ herself from the proximity of the complainant. The intent of issuing a Stay Away Directive is to minimize the burden on the complainant whenever possible.
All Stay Away Directives shall be delivered to both the individual requesting the Stay Away Directive and the individual who is the subject of the Stay Away Directive. The Stay Away Directives shall be delivered to the individual’s university email address, through the university’s Maxient system, if the individuals are students, and by regular university email if the individuals are faculty or staff members.
If the individual who is the subject of the Stay Away Directive fails to open the delivered email, MUPD will serve the individual with the Stay Away Directive and provide written documentation of the service to the Title IX Coordinator.
Each Stay Away Directive will state that the terms of the stay away will remain in effect until further notice. Any requests for modifications to the Stay Away Directive will be determined on a case by case basis.
Each Stay Away Directive will state that a violation of the Stay Away Directive may result in a further disciplinary action.
All Stay Away Directives will be disseminated via email to all relevant university offices including but not limited to MUPD and its individual officers, the Dean of Students and Vice President of Student Affairs.
