MSU professor: Disconnect between the board and the MSU community continues

Apr 12, 2018

 

The Michigan State University Board of Trustees holds its final meeting of this school year on Friday after what was arguably the most damaging year in MSU history in the wake of the Larry Nassar scandal.  

The group Reclaim MSU was formed in response to the university's poor handling of complaints against Nassar. It's made up of students, faculty, and staff who promise to work for greater transparency and accountability from the board and school officials. 

 

Natalie Rogers, the student founder of Reclaim MSU, and Andaluna Borcila, an associate professor in the James Madison College at Michigan State University, joined Stateside to tell us about the group's goals.

 

Listen to the conversation above to hear how the Board of Trustees has responded to the group, what the group's specific proposals are, and how members hope their proposal will impact the culture at Michigan State.

 

We sent Brian Breslin, chairman of MSU's Board of Trustees, an email request for an interview or a statement, and received no response.
