One component of improving the campus culture surrounding sexual harassment at MSU is making sure every single student, faculty member and staff person feels confident in bringing forward their concerns.
In this case, the employee appropriately reported the incidents to the Office of Institutional Equity, which is charged with the responsibility of conducting investigations. The Office of Institutional Equity conducted an investigation applying the processes in place at the time. The investigation determined that no policy violation was found.
We continue to take in to account the experiences of those that have participated in the investigative process to make improvements. The university is committed to thoroughly investigating all complaints to create a safer, healthier and more respectful campus community.
