Rights and Responsibilities

Who Do I Contact for Help?

Because of the complex nature of the university’s work in a wide range of areas, there are many compliance requirements that intersect with individual activities and roles in different ways. Each topic section listed under topics & contacts gives a brief overview of the U-M compliance resources available in that area and contact information for experts who can help you. Within the college, you can also reach out to a colleague, supervisor, HR, or DEI for support and guidance navigating this complex system.
