The University of Michigan has settled a lawsuit surrounding how the school handled allegations of sexual misconduct and abuse.

"As part of the deal, which was filed in federal court on Thursday, the Ann Arbor school will create and pay for a multidisciplinary standing committee designed to protect the university community from sexual abuse," per the Associated Press' Mike Householder.

Michigan's new Coordinated Community Response Team will have around 30 representatives that include administrators and faculty officials, experts on Title IX and campus sexual misconduct, and members of the local community.

This litigation was separate from the lawsuits that resulted in a $490 million settlement in January.
