After sexual abuse allegations against Robert Anderson, late athletic doctor of the University of Michigan, emerged last week, alleged survivors spoke publicly for the first time at a press conference in Southfield Thursday morning.
Alleged survivor and former University wrestler Tad Deluca submitted a letter in 1975 accusing Anderson of sexual abuse when he was a University student from 1972-1976 and another letter with the same allegations in 2018. Deluca claimed both letters were ignored.
Daily Staff Reporters Emma Stein, Arjun Thakkar and Calder Lewis sat down with University President Mark Schlissel this Tuesday for their monthly interview to discuss University policy, commitments and challenges.
Topics of discussion included the endowment, University Provost Martin Philbert, University sexual misconduct policy and health services at the U-M Flint and Dearborn campuses.
Late University of Michigan athletic doctor Robert Anderson was named in allegations of sexual abuse spanning from as early as the 1960s to the 1990s. The accusations come largely from former student-athletes.
Climate Blue, a student organization responsible for organizing the University of Michigan’s student delegation to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change Conference, sent a letter to University administrators on Monday calling for carbon neutrality by 2030.
