All UM employees are required to know about discrimination and sexual misconduct laws and policies. To raise awareness about these issues and to provide information for employees on relevant laws and policies, the University has partnered with EVERFI to develop a comprehensive prevention program for UM employees. Haven for Faculty & Staff is an opportunity to learn what constitutes sexual assault, intimate partner violence, stalking and harassment, the requirement to report to the Title IX Coordinator if a student discloses that they have experienced these types of incidents, how to report an incident, and what University procedures and resources are available to respond to a report.

UM employees are mandatory reporters when it comes to students disclosing information about sexual misconduct, but many people don’t know what that means. This session will focus on what UM employees need to know about Title IX and student sexual misconduct. It will outline the University’s Discrimination Policy and Procedures for a University investigation, how to respond if a student shares that they have been the victim of sexual misconduct, mandated reporting, what support and interim measures are available to students who report to the Title IX Coordinator, what confidentiality means in this context and how we are looking to change our campus culture through bystander intervention.
