Michigan State University has hired the law firm Husch Blackwell to run a Title IX review announced by the University last spring. MSU says the review will focus on five areas:
- Title IX compliance
- crisis and advocacy support services
- prevention and education programs
- awareness and outreach
- campus feedback
The Title IX review is one of the initiatives MSU President Lou Anna K. Simon announced in April in the wake of the Larry Nassar investigation and two sexual-assault cases involving now-former MSU football players. The University says the review is expected to last several months. A report including the assessment and recommendations will be released when it's finished.
