Dianne Byrum has been re-elected by the Michigan State University Board of Trustees to serve another two-year term chairing the board.

Byrum says safely reopening the MSU campus during a pandemic is “right up there” with budget and finance as a priority for 2021.

“Trying to reopen and get back to whatever this new normal is going to be for students, faculty, staff, the state of Michigan, the nation, and so I think those have to be front and center.”

Byrum says continuing to work toward making sure something like the Larry Nassar sexual abuse scandal never happens again also remains a top priority.

Trustees also re-elected Dan Kelly to serve as vice chairperson. Both votes were unanimous.
