Governor Whitmer, Attorney General Nessel, Legislative Leadership Urge Wayne State University Board of Governors to Adopt Code of Conduct February 26, 2020

LANSING, Mich. — Today, Governor Gretchen Whitmer, Attorney General Dana Nessel, Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey, Senate Democratic Leader Jim Ananich, House Speaker Lee Chatfield, and House DemocraticLeader Chris Greig sent a letter to the Wayne State University Board of Governors urging them to adopt a code of conduct at their next meeting on March 20, 2020. The letter comes after the Higher Learning Commission, the boards accrediting body, gave the board until March 24, 2020 to report on its progress toward adopting a code of conduct, among other reforms.

In the letter, the signers stated, Wayne State University is one of our states greatest educational assets. It graduates more professionals that remain in Michigan than any other university. It is a critical part of Michigan’s history, and it will help define Michigan’s future. For this and many other reasons, we strongly urge you to adopt one code of conduct, acceptable to the Higher Learning Commission, at your next meeting.

They continued, You are stewards of an amazing institution and we trust you will make the right decision.

The Higher Learning Commission has made it clear that should the board refuse to adopt a code of conduct, it may take further action, up to and including withdrawal of the university’s accreditation.
