The Michigan State University Faculty Senate passed a vote of no confidence in the schools’ Board of Trustees.

Inside the International Center on MSU’s campus, students and faculty voiced their frustrations with the Board of Trustees. They say the Board of Trustees hasn’t protected its students against sexual assault.

It’s a symbolic vote – it doesn’t carry any legal weight, nor will the board be forced to step down. But the faculty hopes it sends a message.

Professor Robert LaDuca voted in favor of no confidence.

“There’s a gangrene in the university." Says LaDuca. "They are responsible for it. They must leave.”

The measure passed 61 to 4.
