What’s Behind Title IX Investigations at Michigan State and University of Michigan?

An investigation by the U.S. Department of Education into Title IX compliance at Michigan’s two largest public universities has raised questions about what exactly is under investigation and what effect it could have on the colleges.

Education department spokesman Jim Bradshaw confirmed to MLive that federal officials are investigating complaints filed with the education department’s Office for Civil Rights over how Michigan State University and the University of Michigan handled compliance with the law in connection to “sexual violence” at the schools.
