A motion to terminate John Engler as interim president of MSU failed at Friday's Board of Trustees meeting.

Trustee Brian Mosallam asked the board to move to terminate Engler as an addition to the day's agenda. The motion was voted down 6-2 by members of the board. 

Mosallam and Trustee Diane Byrum, who have in recent days called for Engler to step down from his position, voted in favor of the motion. Trustees Brian Breslin, Joel Ferguson, Dan Kelly, Melanie Foster, Mitch Lyons and George Perles voted against it.
