V. Scope of the Violations
Behavior which occurs in the city of Ann Arbor, on University controlled property, or at University sponsored events/programs may violate the Statement. Behavior which occurs outside the city of Ann Arbor or outside University controlled property may violate the Statement only if the behavior poses an obvious and serious threat or harm to any member(s) of the University community. Behavior will be addressed under the Statement in effect at the time the behavior allegedly occurred, not at the time the complaint was filed.
The Statement of Student Rights and Responsibilities is intended to incorporate other specific University policies by reference. These policies are: the University Housing’s Community Living at Michigan Handbook, the Student Sexual and Gender-based Misconduct and Other Forms of Interpersonal Violence, the Responsible Use of Information Resources, and related student information technology policies. The Statement will be used to address violations of these policies only if the violation warrants a process or a sanction/intervention beyond what is available in these policies. In such cases, policy adjudicators may take intermediate action regarding a complaint as defined by their individual policy; however, final resolution will occur under the procedures outlined in this Statement.
