EAST LANSING, Mich. (WJRT) (2/13/2018) - The Michigan State University Faculty Senate voted overwhelmingly Tuesday to approve a no-confidence resolution against the Board of Trustees and Interim President John Engler.
The vote total was 94 percent in favor and 6 percent against the symbolic vote stating displeasure in trustees' handling of the Larry Nassar scandal and its aftermath.
Specifically, faculty members wanted to send a message to the Board of Trustees that they disagree with Engler's appointment. The Faculty Senate was hoping for an interim president better equipped to implement sexual assault programs on campus.
The faculty members called for the entire Board of Trustees to step down.
However, their vote carries no legal weight and is considered only advisory.
