Associated Students of MSU calls on board to release Nassar documents

“The lack of transparency with these documents shows a blatant lack of respect for all survivors on campus, those who have the right to know how these gross injustices were condoned for so long at the school we trust with our safety,” ASMSU's statement said. “It displays a tragic disregard for the students who continue to suffer relationship violence and sexual misconduct crimes on campus with no administrative acknowledgment of their role in cultivating this culture on campus." 


MSU faculty senate calls for Vassar’s removal, reports conduct to accreditor
