After completing a regular policy review last fall, the University of Michigan will make a handful of updates to its policy and procedures regarding student sexual and gender-based misconduct.
The revisions include numerous edits to make the policy easier to read and understand.
Reports and investigations of prohibited student conduct at the University of Michigan increased in fiscal year 2017, following the addition of new types of allegations covered under the university's policy, and increased efforts to enhance awareness of these issues and how to report concerns.
Pam Heatlie has been appointed the university's associate vice provost for academic and faculty affairs, senior director for institutional equity and Title IX coordinator. Her appointment, approved Thursday by the Board of Regents, begins immediately.
Jeffery Frumkin, associate vice provost and senior director of academic human resources, will serve as interim associate vice provost for academic and faculty affairs and senior director for institutional equity.
Reports and investigations of student sexual misconduct decreased in fiscal year 2016, according to the University of Michigan's Student Sexual Misconduct Annual Report.
Reports of sexual misconduct increased in fiscal year 2015 while the number of investigations remained the same, according to the University of Michigan's Student Sexual Misconduct annual report.
