(MPRN-East Lansing) About 100 people marched on Michigan State University’s campus Tuesday. 

Faculty and students from the School of Social Work and College of Education went to the building that houses top administration offices.

Laura Mortensen is a junior studying math and secondary education. She says the problems with MSU’s handling of sexual assault cases go beyond Larry Nassar, the former MSU sports doctor convicted of multiple cases of sexual assault.

“The Nassar case is not the only one. So MSU does have a history of kind of mishandling these things. And it’s very upsetting and I think people need to be looking into things beyond the Nassar case a little more to bring some of those to light.”

Participants in the march called on current interim president John Engler and the Board of Trustees to resign. They say the administration is not being transparent or listening to the concerns of students and faculty.
