MSU students urging Governor Snyder to call for the resignation of the Board of Trustees

Governor Rick Snyder is receiving considerable political pressure to remove or at least call for the resignation of the MSU Board of Trustees, as is a constitutional right awarded to the governor under the state Consitution.  The Speaker of the House, Tom Leonard, has asked for the resignation of the board and a Republican consultant has sued the governor to force him to call for an inquiry into the removal of the board. So far, the Governor has deflected this responsibility.

As the nation’s eyes look to MSU in this tragic and challenging time, we, as students, have the opportunity to call for a complete restructuring of the way universities handle sexual assault across the nation. What happens here in the next few days will affect the course of our nation. This petition is one way we can do this. 

We saw how our public outcry and the organization of a student protest contributed to the resignation of University President Simon.  Now, it is time for us to use our power to pressure Governor Snyder to remove the Board of Trustees. Our university cannot begin to heal and change the years of rape culture fostered on campus until the university’s top administrators are held accountable for their years of neglect and failure to protect their students. 

MSU’s GirlUp, a UN Campaign to support the empowerment of women, calls for Governor Snyder to remove the MSU Board of Trustees.  Stand with us and demand what your university deserves.
