Since allegations of sexual abuse against late University of Michigan athletic physician Robert Anderson were first publicized in February 2020, hundreds of individual lawsuits and two class-action lawsuits have been filed against the University and the Board of Regents by survivors.
The Michigan Daily broke down the progress of these lawsuits, as well as other current actions by survivors to demand accountability and acknowledgement from the University. Read more here.
Michigan Students Against Sexual Assault held a protest to call attention to sexual assault allegations against former U-M Athletics doctor Robert Anderson and to push for more action from the University. Demonstrators called on President Mark Schlissel, Assistant Athletic Director Paul Schmidt and the Board of Regents to resign immediately.
The Institute of Social Research launched its annual Sustainability Cultural Indicators Program survey earlier this month. The University began surveying community members’ awareness of campus sustainability initiatives in 2012. The year’s survey will be the first to include questions about carbon neutrality and is the first of its kind to be sent to students.
The Daily’s Editorial Board argues that the University should expand the offerings of Counseling and Psychological Services to provide more longer-term care for more students. Of students who came to CAPS seeking counseling, 81.1% of students only received one to five sessions, according to University spokesperson Kim Broekhuizen.
