MSU Reports On Employee Actions During Nassar, Strampel Cases


Michigan State University has submitted federally required reports on the actions of employees connected to the Larry Nassar and William Strampel cases.

MSU identified more than 40 people whom it says were notified of either of the two men’s acts of sex discrimination.  Nassar is the former sports doctor now imprisoned for molesting hundreds of girls and young women.  Strampel is the former dean of the College of Osteopathic Medicine who was found guilty of misconduct and willful neglect of duty.  The reports filed with the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights found most employees acted according to university policy.  MSU spokesperson Emily Guerrant says the reports contained no new information that had not previously surfaced during police investigations.

“But there are still things that we’ve uncovered that I know our Relationship Violence and Sexual Misconduct workgroup are evaluating, because we have more changes that we need to make at the university,” said Guerrant.

MSU says it’s taken “responsive steps” towards others who failed to report their knowledge of the cases.
