Not sure that this worthy of its own thread, so I'm posting it here as an FYI. Another U-M statement, this one from Mary Sue Coleman.
University statements on sexual misconduct policy
Comments regarding recent news reports have suggested that the university’s Athletics Department played a role in the investigation of an internal complaint filed with the university.
Statement from President Mary Sue Coleman
Jan. 30, 2014
Athletics has no influence over sexual misconduct investigations or the academic standing of student athletes.
No unit or individual on our campus has any influence over the investigations carried out by the Office for Institutional Equity (OIE).
OIE is charged with conducting fair and impartial internal investigations involving allegations of discrimination and harassment, including allegations of sexual misconduct.
Our policies and processes mandate a thorough and fair handling of any allegations of student sexual misconduct. The University of Michigan takes this responsibility very seriously.
