Abstract Collects documents from Department of Education OCR Title IX investigation. Campus Context: “Sexual assault gained attention on the campus when the Education Department in 2014 identified it in an initial list of 55 institutions facing a federal inquiry for potential Title IX violations over their handling of sexual-violence cases. The federal office later opened an investigation into another complaint at the university.
In 2014, students protested a speech by the conservative columnist George Will at a graduation ceremony. Mr. Will had written a column questioning the prevalence of campus rape and lamenting that colleges had fallen victim to progressivism. One of the cases at Michigan State involved athletes whom a female student had accused of sexual assault, according to the Detroit Free Press. No criminal charges were filed in connection with those accusations. The institution has affirmed its commitment to victims of sexual assault, collected resources online, and taken steps to improve its climate, such as implementing mandatory training and creating a stand-alone office to handle complaints, including those about sexual violence and harassment."
