External Review of Michigan State University’s Policy on Relationship Violence and Sexual Misconduct: Report 1 of 2

Below is a link to a PDF of the external MSU Title IX review being conducted by the law firm of Husch Blackwell.

The following are some key points from the report:

  • MSU’s current Title IX policy and procedures reflect a strong and genuine institutional commitment to combatting sexual misconduct, creating a safe campus environment, as well as compliance with Title IX’s legal requirements. MSU’s policies and procedures are among the most comprehensive and robust we have seen.
  • Overall, MSU’s policies and procedures comply with current legal requirements and agency guidance, and in several places, reflect leading-edge policy concepts that other institutions might consider replicating in their own policies.  
  • We acknowledge that there continues to be significant media attention around MSU’s Title IX efforts that may suggest its policies and procedures are out of compliance. We disagree with this conclusion. Based on our comprehensive review, MSU’s Title IX policy and procedures provide for a process that meets applicable legal requirements and agency guidance that—with effective implementation—creates a timely, fair and equitable resolution process for sexual misconduct reports, as required by law.
