MSU appoints search panel

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan State University trustees have appointed 19 members to a search committee looking for the school’s next president.

The committee will have 10 men and nine women — including various representatives for students, faculty, the board of trustees and others.

A co-chairwoman of the presidential search committee, Trustee Dianne Byrum, said the panel is “inclusive, diverse and representative of the broader MSU stakeholders.”

After Lou Anna Simon resigned in January amid fallout from the Larry Nassar sexual abuse scandal, Michigan State named former Gov. John Engler as interim president.
