Sec. 10-501. Purpose of the Claims and Litigation Policy.
The University, in pursuing its mission and purpose, will play an increasingly significant role in modern society that becomes evermore complex. Since people and organizations are more inclined to resolve disputes through claims and legal action, it is quite likely that the University will be a party to claims and legal actions more often in the future. Because of the Board's responsibility under the Michigan Constitution for operation and protection of the University, it is very important that the Board be well represented in legal matters and kept informed of all litigation in which the University is a party.
