University Board Meeting to Address Trustee Policy Violations



Last Updated on March 3, 2024 by Robert C. Hoopes

The Michigan State University Board of Trustees is set to convene in the wake of a shocking investigation that found Chair Rema Vassar and Trustee Dennis Denno in violation of Board policy. The violations were deemed so serious that calls have been made for Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to consider their removal from office.

The investigation, conducted by the Washington, D.C. law firm Miller & Chevalier, uncovered evidence that Vassar and Denno had conspired with students to publicly embarrass interim President Teresa Woodruff. The duo also launched personal attacks against Jack Lipton, chair of MSU’s Faculty Senate and a respected professor of neuroscience. These attacks were launched in retaliation after Lipton introduced a resolution calling for Vassar to step down from her position.

The findings of the investigation have sent shockwaves through the university community, prompting widespread calls for accountability and transparency. The upcoming Board of Trustees meeting is expected to address the repercussions of the report and determine the appropriate course of action in light of the serious violations.

As the scandal continues to unfold, stakeholders are closely watching to see how Gov. Gretchen Whitmer will respond to the call for the removal of Vassar and Denno from the Board of Trustees. The implications of this investigation could have far-reaching consequences for the leadership and governance of Michigan State University.
