MSU Board of Trustees

Efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19 on the Michigan State University campus seem to be working.

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.”

A Michigan State University Trustee has completed a year-long review of unreleased documents related to the Larry Nassar sexual abuse case.
