Title IX--It's On Us
A Message from MSU's Title IX Program
Faculty, academic staff, and support staff play a critical role in cultivating a culture of caring and respect at MSU. As we open the 2017-18 academic year, I write to provide a few important reminders and draw attention to key updates to MSU's Relationship Violence and Sexual Misconduct Policy. Thank you for your continued support and engagement on this important issue.

UPDATES TO RVSM POLICY
During the spring semester faculty, staff, and students participated in community engagement events where suggestions were shared to improve MSU's Relationship Violence and Sexual Misconduct (RVSM) Policy. We convened a multi-disciplinary working group that included representation from student and faculty governance to identify updates and enhancements to the RVSM Policy.
