Relationship Violence and Sexual Misconduct Plan


In April 2021, after several years of research and analysis, MSU released an institution-wide strategic plan to address sexual assault, sexual harassment, relationship violence, and stalking issues that collectively will help foster a safer campus community.

The Relationship Violence and Sexual Misconduct (RVSM) strategic plan builds on the work of the RVSM Expert Advisory Workgroup, which has been a major driver of RVSM efforts on campus and was tasked with creating a values-driven operational plan with recommended initiatives, timelines and metrics.

In October 2019, President Samuel L. Stanley Jr., M.D. and members of his RVSM advisory committee held series of meetings with survivors of sexual assault to listen to their voices and ideas for improvements.

The RVSM workgroup will use the input from the listening sessions and results from the recent MSU campus survey, to inform a strategic plan for prevention efforts, policy updates and resource development. This plan will be closely connected to the university’s strategic planning process and will build upon the actions the committee has already taken since its inception.
