Statement on conviction of William Strampel (June 12, 2019)
Today’s verdict reinforces the need for Michigan State to continue improving the climate for all faculty, staff and students at the university. We will continue addressing the culture that allowed such abhorrent behavior as we work on meaningful actions to be more aware and more accountable. We have improved our dean review process, improved patient-care policies and our College of Osteopathic Medicine is developing a forward-looking strategic plan to improve and assess the educational climate. We know we have more work to do and are committed to the changes needed.
-Emily Guerrant, MSU Spokesperson
