Dingell Reaction to Education Department Investigation into MSU Campus Safety

February 1, 2019
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (D-MI) issued the following statement after a Department of Education investigation found that Michigan State University violated federal campus safety laws in connection to the sexual abuse by Larry Nassar:

“MSU’s disregard for student safety is coming into clearer focus. The Department of Education’s report uncovered decades of negligence and violations in the university’s response to sexual assault and criminal activity spanning various areas of campus life. MSU leaders continue to demonstrate a lack of urgency in addressing their failure to protect young people from physical and emotional abuse. Michigan State must continue working to regain the trust of every survivor, student, alumni, and the state of Michigan. Congress has the responsibility to ensure a systematic failure of this gravity never happens again.”
