President Simon: Message to MSU Community on Larry Nassar Investigation, February 22, 2017

Our hearts continue to go out to those most directly affected as additional state charges are announced against former MSU employee Larry Nassar. I am deeply troubled by the emerging details and recognize the courage it takes to come forward with information about of personally traumatic events. While investigations continue, based on the criminal charges brought against him by the Michigan Attorney General and federal U.S. Attorney, one thing is clear: Nassar used his reputation and standing as a physician to take advantage of his patients’ trust. MSU Police continue to play a key role in the investigations in close coordination with the state Attorney General and the federal U.S. Attorney. I urge any individuals who have complaints about Nassar, or information relevant to the investigations, to contact MSU Police.

--MSU President Lou Anna K. Simon
