The State News Editorial Board — among several other voices echoing in your ears — is calling for every single one of you to resign, effective immediately.
The day started in court. It ended with the conclusion of a 20-year storyline — with 156 victim impact statements, with ex-MSU and USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar behind bars and with President Lou Anna K. Simon’s resignation letter. On Jan. 24, MSU launched into uncharted waters.
MSU has no right to be quiet about issues of sexual harassment and sexual assault, nor should MSU sit back and allow these issues to boil over until the administration is forced to address them.
In order to create change, in order for every Spartan to move forward on a united front, in order for MSU and its Spartans to learn anything from the Nassar situation, there needs to be an open, honest dialogue from both sides. Spartans are doing their part.
For the Spartan community to continue its revolution, we have to remain vigilant in all circumstances. We have to question every alleged perpetrator, scrutinize every possible enabler and fight every incident of potential abuse.
