ANN ARBOR, Mich — The University of Michigan said it will not change the way it is handling the investigation into allegations of sexual abuse by a late doctor at the school.

A statement released Friday from President Mark Schlissel and the board of regents said the school is “overseeing a process that will ultimately serve as the best course of action" for the survivors and the university.

The statement came in response to calls by accusers and their lawyers for Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel to investigate.

Nessel said she would welcome a request from the University of Michigan to investigate, but she first asked for a commitment of full cooperation from the institution.
