Creation of Equity, Civil Rights and Title IX Office announced

The University of Michigan today announced sweeping revisions to its approach to addressing sexual misconduct, including the creation of a new office with significant new resources for support, education and prevention, as well as sharing new details on a process that will include the development of shared community values. The new multidisciplinary unit – the Equity, Civil Rights and Title IX Office – will house many of the critical functions around equity and civil rights work, including Title IX, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and other forms of discrimination. This will replace and subsume the university’s Office for Institutional Equity.
