President Stanley: Statement on MSU employee's social media comments (June 29, 2020)

I understand the deep concern and anger of our community for the abhorrent remarks made by a MSU employee on their personal social media account. Rest assured these statements do not reflect the values of our institution or MSU’s belief that Black Lives Matter. While I share in the concern of our Spartan community and recognize their desire to have an immediate resolution, personnel matters are often complex and merit a comprehensive review to ensure any potential disciplinary employment action taken is not easily overturned.

At this time, the MSU employee remains on suspension as the appropriate university investigatory entities complete their review.

-MSU President Samuel L. Stanley Jr., M.D.
