LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan first lady Sue Snyder will hold the state’s first campus sexual assault prevention summit next month in Lansing.

Gov. Rick Snyder’s office says the summit is June 8 at the Lansing Center. It says the event aims to make Michigan a model in preventing sexual assault among college students.

Sue Snyder says she believes “Michigan can and should be a leader in addressing this critical issue.” She says that as a mother whose youngest daughter will soon be a college sophomore, the issue “has taken on a personal meaning.”

The summit will be co-hosted by Sens. Tonya Schuitmaker and Rebekah Warren and Reps. Laura Cox and Marilyn Lane. The bipartisan group of legislators will be accompanied by college and university representatives, law enforcement officials and students.
