>>MSU Faculty Senate Vote Held

(East Lansing, MI) — Michigan State University’s faculty Senate issued a no confidence vote in the school’s Board of Trustees yesterday. According to multiple outlets in East Lansing, it was a 61-to-four vote. The move comes amid the Larry Nassar scandal and the trustees appointment of former Michigan governor John Engler as interim university president.

The Faculty Senate casted votes to say they are concerned about the selection process that led to Engler’s appointment and how the university will move forward. Nassar, a former Michigan State and USA Gymnastics doctor, admitted to sexually assaulting over 200 women and girls while calling his actions “treatment.”
