HuskiesFit Winter Break Class

On Friday, January 17, 2020, all students over age 18 will be invited to participate in the Michigan Tech Title IX Sexual and/or Relationship Misconduct Climate Survey.  Students will receive an email with a link to the survey.

The goal of the survey is to provide Michigan Tech with important information on campus sexual misconduct prevalence and responses. Preventing and remedying sexual misconduct is essential to maintaining a safe environment in which students can learn. We are committed to ensuring that all students have the opportunity to fully benefit from our programs and activities.

If students have questions or comments about this survey, please have them contact Kirst Arko, Title IX Coordinator, 306 Administration Building, 906-487-3310, or
