It's real

MSU News - February 14, 2018 - 12:18pm
"Here are a few things that I know to be true: 1) @michiganstateu is filled with people who care immensely about each other and the world around them. 2) #SpartansWill is real. 3) I work with some of the best, most talented people, and their integrity impresses me every day." Those were the wise, inspiring words that came across my Twitter feed from my good friend and colleague, Ellen, the other day. It had been an especially challenging day for all of us, yet her words gave me pause, lifted me up and provided hope in the dark. These are the days we live in now. The ups and downs of navigating a new reality confuse me, exhaust me and energize me all at the same time. The weight of what has happened here is still very, very heavy. The pain of survivors will not be forgotten. Yet the determination to work together and find solutions to create needed change is palpable in the Spartan community like never before. Ellen is right - #SpartansWill is real and needed now more than ever. The resolve of Spartans is astonishing and we will not rest until we find solutions. I've spent some time this week working on a tribute site for former MSU president Cecil Mackey who passed away Feb. 8. He served as president here from 1979 to 1985, long before I came to work here so I never met him. However, I did see him and his wife occasionally at campus events and always thought to myself, "What a cool couple, there's almost an aura around them."

Scott Westerman: Steadfast commitment and tenacious effort

MSU News - February 14, 2018 - 7:12am
Over the past weeks, I have communicated with hundreds of MSU alumni in every corner of the world. Out of those conversations, two common themes have emerged: A loss of innocence and a renewal of resolve. We found it hard to believe that something like this could happen here. But it has. It has become part of our history and we must own that. The most important question now is, "What will Spartans do?"

MSU News - February 14, 2018 - 5:23am
As I take on the task of organizing and sharing my thoughts on the recent events that have transpired at my university, I feel the need to tread carefully. As a student of MSU, as a woman, as someone who has experienced sexual harassment in the past, as a person who studies politics and communications, as a person with basic human empathy and compassion... I am angry.
