Our Community Matters

The University of Michigan is committed to providing a safe learning, working and living environment, and does not tolerate violence of any type, including the crime of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking.

However, when these kinds of violations occur, we want students, faculty and staff to know options for reporting to law enforcement and/or the university as well as know a survivor’s rights (legally and for academic, housing, transportation and employment) as well as available support services, including confidential resources.


Rights and Resources Guide

Here's a comprehensive resource guide that is intended to assist University students, faculty and staff who may have experienced sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and/or stalking.

Reporting

You may report to the university, to law enforcement, to both, or neither. We encourage you to report what you have experienced to law enforcement and to participate in the university's internal review process, but you are not obliged to do so.
