University of Michigan Policy & Procedures on Student Sexual & Gender-Based Misconduct & Other Forms of Interpersonal Violence

Sexual Misconduct Umbrella Policy

On Oct. 15, 2019, U-M released its draft umbrella policy for addressing sexual and gender-based misconduct that would apply to students, faculty, staff and third parties on the Ann Arbor, Dearborn and Flint campuses.

Annual Reports

"The Title IX Coordinator will issue an annual report to the U-M community about actions taken by the University in response to reports of sexual misconduct by students. The report will inform the community of response efforts and engage the community in education and prevention initiatives. Reports of past actions will provide an overview of information, with removal of confidential details to the extent necessary to respect the privacy of affected parties."
