The University Policy on Relationship Violence & Sexual Misconduct defines sexual misconduct as "a broad term that encompasses sexual harassment, sexual violence and sexual exploitation."
MSU faculty and staff are mandatory reporters. This means if faculty or staff are informed of sexual misconduct they must report it to the MSU Police and the Office of Institutional Equity. Reports made to program directors or the MSU 24/7 International Emergency line are also subject to mandatory reporting procedures.
If you want to make a confidential report, you can use the confidential resources available below.

The easiest way to report sexual misconduct to MSU while you are abroad is to call the MSU 24/7 International Emergency Line at +1-517-353-3784. We will report to MSU Police and the Office of Institutional Equity.
It's often a good idea to file a sexual misconduct report with local police, but depending on your location that may not be a safe option. If you're not sure whether or not to make a sexual misconduct report to local authorities, you can call the MSU 24/7 International Emergency Line for advice (and to report). In some cases, the local U.S. Embassy/Consulate may also be able to assist you.
