Interim Michigan State University President John Engler has instructed school employees to cooperate with investigations into campus sexual misconduct. Michigan’s former governor began his first full day on the job as convicted MSU sports doctor Larry Nassar was sentenced for sexually abusing patients.
In a letter to faculty and other employees, Engler said these are likely the “most difficult times ever faced by MSU.” And he instructed them to preserve documents and other possible evidence that could be sought by investigators.
Engler also named an interim athletic director to replace Mark Hollis. He says a national search is underway for a permanent replacement, and that no internal candidate would be considered for the job.
