Sexual Misconduct InformatioN

Mid is committed to maintaining a safe but unhindered environment for students, faculty, staff, and visitors to work and learn. Our primary concern is for the safety of our Campus Community and providing an environment where individual’s rights are protected from all forms of discrimination, harassment and sexual misconduct. This includes acts of sexual violence, sexual assault, sexual harassment, dating violence, domestic violence, sexual exploitation, and stalking and has policies, procedures, and resource information in place for when such acts occur.

Information on the College’s Campus Title IX-Sexual Harassment Policy, Non-Discrimination, Harassment, and Sexual Misconduct Policy, Title IX Coordinator and Title IX, Complainant and Respondent’s Rights, and various other information is available on the College’s Title IX & Civil Rights webpage.

Confidential Resources and Support

The College encourages individuals who have experienced acts of criminal or sexual violence to report the conduct to the College’s Title IX Coordinator, Campus Security, or local law enforcement. However, the College understands that there are many barriers to reporting, both individual and societal. Not every individual will choose to make a formal report but still may need someone to speak with in confidentiality who is not required to report the incident the College’s Title IX Coordinator. As the college does not have a counseling or health center and in an effort to support individual’s rights to speak with someone in confidence, the College maintains a Community Assistance Resource page.

Individuals who wish to remain anonymous and have experienced acts of criminal or sexual violence on any of Mid’s campus locations, at college-sponsored activities or events, or off campus where the perpetrator is a member of the campus community are encouraged to consider submitting an anonymous report using the Security Concern/Tip Line Report Form. Submission of this report permits the Clery Compliance Officer to determine if the incident should be reported among the crime statistics in the Annual Security Report. The College is required to disclose crime statistics in the Report, per Federal Law, specifically the Clery Act.

Community Resources

The College realizes the importance of having community references readily available. A list of external resources is housed on the College’s website, entitled Community Assistance Resources, as well on the Campus Safety webpage. Information on both pages is updated regularly.

Additionally, the College has assembled a ‘commonly asked questions and answers’ booklet for survivors of sexual misconduct which is available on the College’s Title IX & Civil Rights webpage. The Guide provides information on survivor reporting options through the College and local law enforcement, resources available on and off campus, information on SANE examinations, how to obtain a College Mutual No Contact Order and acquire a Personal Protection Order from the Courts, etc. A resource handbook, published in 2018 by the Office of the Governor in conjunction with the former First Lady of Michigan, entitled A Resource for Campus Sexual Assault Survivors, Friends, and Family is also available.


Campus Security Policies, Crime Statistics and Student Right to Know

The College, through publication of its Annual Security Report (ASR), provides information on policies, procedures, and initiatives surrounding safety and security. The Report is designed to provide the campus community with timely, accurate and complete information about the safety of our campuses and any reported crime so that individuals can make informed decisions on how to keep themselves safe. The Report includes crime statistics for the previous three years in/on campus property, on public property within or immediately adjacent to college owned buildings, and on any properties that are frequented by students that are owned or otherwise controlled by the College but are not immediately adjacent to Campus property. The ASR contains information on current policies and measures that are implemented to create a safe and secure environment of learning for the Mid community; including policies on Drugs and Alcohol, Non-Discrimination, Harassment, and Sexual Misconduct, Smoke Free Campus, Weapons, and Campus Security. Security Operations and Systems is charged with collecting, compiling, and distributing the Report, which is available by visiting midmich.edu/securityreport .


The College also maintains a Daily Crime Log for the purpose of recording any criminal incident or alleged criminal incident that are reported to or identified by Campus Security or Campus Security Authorities that occurred on College property, at off campus locations hosting classes, activities, or events. Crime information is placed in the Daily Crime Log which reflects the date the crime was reported, date the crime occurred, crime location, nature of the incident, as well as the disposition of the crime. The most recent 60 days of the Daily Crime Log is available for immediate public inspection through Security Operations and Systems, 1375 S. Clare Avenue, Office 204 or 205, Harrison, Michigan or 2600 S. Summerton Road, Office 103 or 105, Mt. Pleasant, MI; Monday through Friday between 8:30 AM and 4:30 PM.
