Room, Board Rates On Trustees Agenda

Apr 13, 2018

The Michigan State University Board of Trustees will meet again today. The top item on the Trustees agenda is setting housing and dining plan pricing for the 2018-19 academic year.

They’ll also consider creating and filling two positions. Kathleen Wilbur would serve as Executive Vice President for Government and External Relations, at a salary of $320,000. Emily Guerrant would become Vice President and University Spokesperson, with a $180,000 salary.

It’s likely that there will be more criticism of MSU’s handling of sexual assaults. Student and faculty groups are calling for a role in MSU’s presidential search and amending the state constitution to add student and faculty members to the board. ReclaimMSU is promoting a protest on its Facebook page.
