Sexual Misconduct Prevention

Updated January 2019

The University of Michigan’s current work to address sexual misconduct on the Ann Arbor campus builds on more than 30 years of providing support and resources for those in the university community impacted by sexual harassment and sexual assault through the Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Center.

U-M provides sexual assault awareness and prevention education as well as bystander training to all ​incoming students, and offers employees education and training to foster and maintain a welcoming, supportive, inclusive and diverse working and learning environment.

Matters involving student-to-student conduct are addressed under the University of Michigan Policy and Procedures on Student Sexual and Gender-Based Misconduct and Other Forms of Interpersonal Violence.

Matters involving U-M employees are addressed under the U-M Standard Practice Guide 201.89 Sexual Harassment.

The Office for Institutional Equity conducts investigations into all reported allegations of sexual assault, intimate partner violence, sexual and gender-based harassment and stalking, and identifies resources and support for all parties involved in the investigation process.

The university continues to research the issue of sexual harassment and sexual assault on campus to ensure it has the most effective policies and procedures in place for addressing matters impacting the U-M community. Learn more about U-M’s Campus Climate surveys and view results here.
