Q1. Sexual Violence

QUESTION: Title IX is a part of a Federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination in any federally funded educational program or activity. Included in that definition are protections for University students against sexual harassment and sexual violence. In parallel to that, the emerging #MeToo Movement and the criminal case against Michigan State University sports doctor Larry Nassar have highlighted the failings of universities in upholding their duties to protect students from sexual violence. With sexual violence being one of the most prominent issues on our college campuses, how would you ensure the University that you govern adheres to and strengthen Title IX protections for students?

NO ANSWER

Q2. Tuition

QUESTION: The State legislature, through the appropriations process, allocates funding from the State’s budget to Universities and other higher education institutions. In the past several decades, appropriations to those institutions have been sharply declining. In response to losing those funds, Universities have typically made up those lost revenues by raising tuition on students, directly contributing to the growth of student debt. Absent an increase of State Appropriations to Universities and other Higher Education institutions, how would you contain costs to prevent against raising tuition for students?

NO ANSWER

Q3. Graduation Rates for African-American Students

QUESTION: In 2017, an education organization called “The Education Trust” highlighted the statistic that only about 41% of Black students who start college as first time, full-time freshmen earn bachelor's degrees from those institutions, a rate which is 22% below their White peers. What policies will you implement as a University board member to bridge that gap?
