At the first MSU Board of Trustees meeting led by recently-appointed Interim President John Engler, the trustees commented on campus climate, health and wellness on campus, the appointment of personnel positions and other issues.
During Friday's Board of Trustees meeting, the trustees discussed changes to health colleges and services, appointed personnel to new roles and commented on the campus climate.
MSU Interim President John Engler announced new changes to MSU's administrative structure for student wellness programs, including renaming the College of Human Medicine to “College of Medicine” and the appointment of new officials.
The Associated Students of Michigan State University, or ASMSU, created a list of suggestions for what communication and engagement should look like on Wednesday, which was sent out to the Board of Trustees. The organization also plans to work with Engler moving forward.
Elementary education sophomore Bethany Caswell and communication sophomore Sophie Lynskey were not able to experience welcome week, moving in the dorms with hallways full of people. Instead, they came to MSU at a time where campus had no signs, nearly empty and only Brody’s dining hall was open. No groups, no welcome and no freshman experience.
