MSU Expected to Name Former Governor Engler as President

MSU Expected to Name Former Governor Engler as President”

Board of Trustees confirmed at a meeting Wednesday that they have selected Michigan Gov. John Engler as interim president.

Earvin "Magic" Johnson said on Twitter Monday that anyone involved in a Michigan State University cover up to allow disgraced doctor Larry Nassar to continue to working there should be fired.

In a press conference following the meeting, John Engler, a Republican former governor in office from 1991 to 2003 and the last to serve three terms, promised to "move forward as if my own daughter were on this campus". Earlier this month, more than 150 women spoke out about the sexual assault they had endured from Larry Nassar, a former Michigan State doctor and USA Gymnastics team physician.

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette recently made a promise to have the officials of Michigan State University investigated over how they handled sexual abuse cases notably after the conviction of Larry Nassar.

Amid the fallout, the board had expressed support for Simon before her resignation, while she continued to face enormous pressure from students, faculty and legislators.

The NCAA and state of Michigan have launched investigations into allegations that Michigan State employees knew of Nassar's abuse years before his firing.

The new president will need the support of a clean-handed board, and one that share his or commitment to figuring out exactly what went wrong at MSU, who is culpable, and how to prevent a recurrence. Some reports say it will be, on an interim basis, deputy athletics director Greg Ianni, who oversees the Spartans' athletic facilities and works toward the development of long-range plans for improving those sites.

Tracy was gang-raped by four Oregon State football players in 1998 and came forward with her story in 2014, becoming a champion for sexual assault survivors and for change on college campuses throughout the country.

Engler will serve until the board picks a permanent replacement, which could take some time.

Blanchard and Murray were mentioned as a possible Michigan State president when Peter McPherson left in 2004 and Simon was promoted from provost to president.

In a letter posted late Tuesday night the group wrote quote, "Should the board indeed appoint ex-Governor Engler we'll be sadly forced to bring a vote of motion to hold a vote of no-confidence in the Board of Trustees to Academic Congress by an electronic ballot". Both men are MSU alumni. "Maybe because it was going to put them in a better light, but you simply can't do that". "I suggest new leadership is needed".

The agency reported that MSU's grievance procedures failed to comply with the requirements of Title IX, and that "the University's failure to address complaints of sexual harassment, including sexual violence, in a prompt and equitable manner caused and may have contributed to a continuation of this sexually hostile environment".
