Interim president statement on release of documents to MI attorney general's office

"I want to provide our community with an update on the release of the Nassar documents to the Michigan Attorney General’s Office. MSU’s Office of General Counsel has met with the Attorney General’s office and have mutually determined that the document transfer process will begin late February. As outlined in the resolution that the Board of Trustees passed on Dec. 15, 2023, the university is in the process of developing and implementing a comprehensive, trauma-informed plan that will support survivors who are impacted by the release of the documents. Part of this plan will include the university hiring an individual temporary person to help facilitate coordinated efforts between our campus partners that are instrumental in providing support to our survivor community, which include our Relationship Violence and Sexual Misconduct Expert Advisory Workgroup, Center for Survivors, our Office of Civil Rights and Title IX Education and Compliance and others. Let us extend our unwavering compassion to survivors, ensuring they feel deeply supported through this process."
