University of Michigan Student Sexual Misconduct Policy

Recent guidance from the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights highlights the nationwide impact of sexual misconduct on campus and makes specific recommendations regarding how colleges and universities respond to sexual misconduct allegations.

Pursuant to this guidance, as well as our own ongoing commitment to creating an environment free from sexual misconduct, we developed a  procedure for addressing sexual misconduct allegations against students at the University of Michigan. This procedure supersedes the processes specific to sexual misconduct currently outlined in the Statement of Student Rights and Responsibilities and is in effect starting August 19th, 2013.

Helping a Survivor of Sexual Assault

It can be a very challenging experience when someone discloses a sexual assault; however, knowing how to be supportive can be crucial in a survivor’s healing process. There are two things you need to think about: how you can support the survivor, and how you can take care of yourself.
