U. of Michigan Faculty Criticizes Weak Due-Process Protections in Investigations

The Chronicle of Higher Education
March 12th, 2015

A faculty committee at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor says professors accused of harassment and discrimination receive weak due-process protections, reports The Michigan Daily, the university’s student newspaper.
In a report, the Faculty Senate’s advisory committee on university affairs asserts that the university’s Office for Institutional Equity does not provide “fair and adequate notice” to professors under investigation and does not foster appeals of any findings against them, among other things. The report recommends that the office’s procedures be overhauled in consultation with the committee.
