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.
