'March on Hannah' scheduled Tuesday by members of education faculty
A March on Hannah is planned for 10 a.m. at Erickson Hall on Feb. 6. The march is expected to last until 11 a.m.
“We will bring with us a list of demands, including the immediate resignation of the Board of Trustees and Interim President Engler,” according to a post on the Facebook event page. “All MSU faculty, staff, students, and friends are invited to join us.”
The march is run by some faculty members of the College of Education. The Facebook event page was created by Terah Venzant Chambers, an associate professor in Educational Administration.
“We are wanting to bring attention and hold that attention so that the Board of Trustees cannot just move on from this,” Chambers said. “To show that the campus is listening, that we are waiting, that we are demanding chance We want some resolution to this issue of John Engler and the Board of Trustees.”
They will meet in the lobby of Erickson, and from there walk to the Hannah Administration Building.
This is the third march on campus since Simon’s resignation. The March for Survivors and Change took place on Jan. 26.
The March for Transpancy was held by the MSU democrats Feb. 2, starting at the Rock on Farm Lane. Students and faculty members alike called for transparency at MSU. Many organizations voiced their concerns about the appointment of Interim President John Engler.
“I want this march tomorrow to be a show of solidarity across not just faculty and not just the College of Education," Chambers said. "I am hoping this ends up being an allied march of students, faculty and staff in the college of Education but also across the community. This is an opportunity to show we are demanding action.”
