We have released a statement on the appointment of Interim President Engler that you can read in our previous post. We have also been engaging in a coalition of students, faculty, and staff called Reclaim MSU to demand more accountability and transparency from the university. We have long been aware of the inadequacies of our anti- harassment and anti-discrimination policies on campus, and we are asking the coalition to demand stronger language and additional protected categories, reform for effective enforcement of institutional policies, and protection of enforcement mechanisms.
Additionally, over the next two weeks, the Academic Advancement Network, the Office for Inclusion and Intercultural Initiatives, the WorkLife Office, and the Graduate School are offering four sessions open to all employees to engage in productive conversations about current events and climate.
