MSU officials break down latest sex assault, harassment data

Oct 24, 2016

In the first ever report of its kind, Michigan State University recently detailed data about campus sexual violence, harassment, stalking, and resulting investigations. We talk with two University officials involved in the effort to reduce sexual violence.


The latest data about sexual assault and harassment at Michigan State University was released a few weeks ago. The university’s Office of Institutional Equity says that between August of last year and August of this year, officials received 461 complaints that might have violated the school’s Relationship Violence and Sexual Misconduct policy.

MSU says it was the first such compilation of its kind.

Current State talks with Jessica Norris, Michigan State’s Title IX coordinator, and Ande Durojaiye, the director of MSU’s recently launched Office of Institutional Equity.
