There’s been a guilty plea in connection with fraudulent claims to a fund set up by Michigan State University for the treatment of sexual assault survivors.

Convicted sex offender Larry Nassar is again appealing the prison sentence he got from Ingham County Circuit Judge Rosemarie Aquilina in 2018, this time, to the Michigan Supreme Court.

Dianne Byrum has been reelected 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, saying that "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.”
