"Reclaim MSU advocates for shared governance, in which students, faculty, and staff are involved in university decision making at the highest levels," ReclaimMSU said in a statement. "The GEO strike at the University of Michigan illustrates what happens when administrators make decisions alone, without shared governance and without fully engaging all stakeholders. This action also demonstrates the moral power and organizational strength of the GEO. We stand in solidarity with them and applaud their courage."
The third CDO finalist — DeBrenna LaFa Agbenyiga — wants the education to go beyond the campus, and for the MSU community to take it with them when they leave.
