Title IX-Celebrating 50 Years
Report Sexual Misconduct

Support for Pregnant Students

SVSU is committed to supporting pregnant students throughout the course of their studies. Information about your pregnancy will be treated confidentially and sensitively on a need-to-know basis with consent. Students are granted a leave of absence for as long as it is deemed medically necessary by a doctor. At the conclusion of the leave, the student may be allowed to resume status held when the leave began. A memo will be created with you to ensure reasonable accommodations are made and your needs are met during your pregnancy, following the birth and when you return to study. 

Visit the Office of Accessibility Resources & Accommodations to request reasonable accommodations.

For more information regarding your rights as a pregnant or parenting student, please contact Dr. Mamie T. Thorns, special assistant to the president for diversity programs and Title IX coordinator, at 989-964-4068 or
