LANSING, Mich. – State Sen. Mallory McMorrow (D–Royal Oak) has issued the following statement on John Engler’s expected resignation as interim president of Michigan State University:
“The president of our state’s largest public university is first and foremost responsible for the well-being of each and every single student, and second a public face of our state to the rest of the country and the world. In this capacity, interim President Engler failed the victims, the student body, and our state. I’m thankful that the MSU Board of Trustees has put on appropriate pressure to finally hold the university accountable to that responsibility.
“I hope that MSU will move forward with new leadership that will prioritize and protect students, and who will make meaningful changes to university policies to ensure that anyone who is a victim of sexual abuse is heard, believed, and able to find justice.”
