First All Member Meeting Held December 6, 2022
CCRT members gathered on December 6, 2022 for our first membership-wide meeting. U-M President Santa Ono welcomed the group and provided opening remarks. During the meeting, the Co-Leads introduced themselves, presented a proposed mission statement, and provided some background and information on the structure of the CCRT. The members then engaged in a brainstorming activity about goals and aspirations for the CCRT.
Following the meeting, members provided feedback on a draft mission statement and selected their working group for 2023.
- Based on member ranking and selections, working groups were constituted.
- CCRT Co-Leads met with working group Co-Chairs for onboarding.
- Working groups began meeting and setting priorities.
- The Co-Leads met with President Ono on October 23, 2023.
- October 25, 2023, the CCRT held an all member meeting working on recommendations to the President.
Recognizing that the mandate of the CCRT is to hear community feedback and address the issues that the community identifies as priorities, the Co-Leads hosted a series of listening sessions in the months of September and October 2022. The Co-Leads invited the following groups to participate in separate listening sessions: student survivors of sexual misconduct, alumni survivors of sexual misconduct, U-M non-faculty staff, the Senate Advisory Committee on University Affairs (SACUA), the Graduate Employees’ Organization (GEO), Central Student Government (CSG), student organizations serving students of color, student organizations serving LGBTQ+ students, the Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Center (SAPAC), and the LSA Student Government Sexual Misconduct Response and Prevention Task Force.
The Co-Leads contacted 21 schools and colleges at U-M Ann Arbor and the Chancellors of U-M Flint and U-M Dearborn, asking for time on the agenda of their leadership/chairs and directors/faculty meetings (as appropriate) to present information about the CCRT and extend invitations for involvement. The Co-Leads visited those schools, colleges, and campuses that responded to our request and gave brief presentations; the informational visits continued into November 2022.
Any other units or groups who would like the CCRT Co-Leads to provide information about the CCRT at their meetings is invited to contact the Co-Leads at email@example.com.
Through listening sessions, one-on-one meetings with community members, emails and the CCRT website suggestions page, members of the U-M community shared their thoughts and input with the Co-Leads. The list below contains some of the most prominent themes and issues that people raised. At the first meeting of the CCRT, members began determining how to organize and prioritize attention to these issues.
