June 29, 2023: Statement on U.S. Supreme Court striking down affirmative action in college admissions

Following the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling that strikes down affirmative action in the college admissions process, MSU Vice President and Spokesperson Emily Gerkin Guerrant issued the following statement:

"We are carefully reviewing the ruling but believe the decision by the court will not change our approach to recruiting and retaining a broad and diverse student body and creating opportunities for all students. MSU values diversity and inclusion. All Spartans benefit from a more diverse student body, faculty and staff, which better prepares our students for post-graduation success and makes a more inclusive and welcoming society. This academic year, we had our largest and one of our most diverse classes of first-year students, and we are building on that progress alongside our campus partners.”
