An alleged incident of sexual assault has been reported on the campus of Michigan Technological University. The individuals allegedly involved were guest undergraduate students visiting campus for the summer term. Once the university was notified, MTU’s Department of Public Safety and Police Services responded to the incident immediately and swiftly determined the alleged assailant was no longer a potential threat to the university and the community. Victims’ services were activated and provided by trained trauma services personnel.
The alleged assailant was arraigned this morning at the Houghton County courthouse. MTU is fully collaborating with all authorities and remains steadfast in its efforts to provide a safe and secure campus for all University students, faculty, staff and visitors. We have zero tolerance for sexual harassment or violence – and will continue to monitor our efforts and processes to ensure we’re doing everything possible to protect our campus community.
