SEXUAL AND GENDER-BASED MISCONDUCT PREVENTION

Updated February 2022

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

In 2021, the university announced the creation of the Equity, civil Rights and Title IX Office to lead campus efforts in prevention, education, support and providing resources. The creation of this office was one of a number of policy changes and other processes designed to keep the community safe. 

U-M is committed to creating a campus culture where all members of the university community — students, faculty, staff and visitors — feel safe and supported.

This page provides tools and resources that can help ensure safe and respectful campus communities in Ann Arbor, Dearborn and Flint and at Michigan Medicine, which also are outlined on the sexual and gender-based misconduct reporting and resources website here.

The university has a variety of ways to report sexual and gender-based misconduct on campus, including:
