Information Sharing

The MSU Police Department and Office of Institutional Equity (OIE) independently investigate complaints of relationship violence and sexual misconduct.

OIE is required to notify the MSU Police of all reports it receives regarding sexual assaults, relationship violence, and stalking. This does not obligate you to talk to the police, and the choice about whether to participate in a law enforcement investigation remains with you.

MSU Police Department reports all incidents to OIE. The MSU Police Department shares information about ongoing investigations with the OIE to the extent that sharing such information will not interfere with law enforcement proceedings.

If you have experienced sexual misconduct, relationship violence, stalking, discrimination, or harassment, or would like to make a report to help a friend or colleague, you can contact:
