*The SMTD Faculty and Staff Allies Network (FASAN) is a collection of volunteer leaders dedicated to fostering a nurturing, respectful, and safe SMTD community, free from sexual misconduct, harassment, and gender bias. Distinct from a policy body or counseling effort, FASAN works collaboratively with the SMTD community to deepen our collective understanding of issues surrounding sexual misconduct, especially the power dynamics that can lead to abuse and a culture of silence. It strives to create a climate of open communication, awareness, and responsiveness through community education events. FASAN volunteers commit to attending additional training, particularly about U-M policies and support resources, so that they can serve as informed consultants to their faculty and staff peers. Network members seek to create an ever more positive learning atmosphere at SMTD and to improve the professional climate of the performing arts field as a whole.
