University releases statement on encampment set up on campus

Michigan State University is dedicated to freedom of speech and encourages its students to be informed and honor the exchange of free ideas and individual expression. The university was made aware this morning that a group of individuals set up tents for a protest in People’s Park on campus. Being that camping is in violation of MSU Ordinance 13, MSU police officers were called to respond to the area. Officers peacefully spoke with group leaders and informed them of the violation. No arrests have been made.

The university is continuing to engage in discussions with group leaders and we will provide additional information as it is warranted.
