The presentation reportedly made the campus feel unsafe. Are these people adults?

Michigan State president apologizes for U.S. border patrol class presentation

The president of Michigan State University expressed remorse Tuesday for a class presentation by U.S. Customs and Border Protection members in a university-wide email, saying the incident “disrupted a sense of safety.”

President Samuel Stanley’s email, subject line “Fostering a safe and inclusive campus,” promised that the presentation, as well as an incident of vandalism against Jewish students, and a survey question that offended some students, are being investigated by the campus police and the Office of Institutional equality.

The email also expressed concern over a “racial bias” incident in a dormitory, where toilet paper was hung on the door room door of two black students in a shape some said resembled a noose. The university determined that the incident was a non-racist Halloween prank, but some students are still outraged by it.

“Some of these actions may not have grown from negative intent or malice, but it’s important for us all to remember the difference between intent and impact. Regardless of intent, there is still an impact being felt across campus,” Stanley wrote. “These situations have disrupted a sense of safety that should exist for everyone. Building inclusive communities is at the core of our values, and the impact of recent events cannot be underestimated.”

As the President of Michigan State was listing the incidents being investigated by campus police, you’d think he’d notice how trivial they were. He included everything from hanging toilet paper in someone’s dorm room (oh my!) to a classroom presentation by the Border Patrol. Maybe he doesn’t know Michigan borders Canada. Can’t help wondering just what Mich State is trying to teach its students … anything about being grown-ups? Wouldn’t it just be easier to sign the Chicago Freedom of Speech paper? Then the President wouldn’t look like such a fool.

    It takes a grown-up to teach a child to be a grown-up. I did not realize Michigan State was a daycare for children run by children.

    If this is what the campus police do then a typical mall security guard does more law enforcement than these campus police.

“Are these people adults?”

Um…no.

Did you really need to ask?

Wanting to send President Stanley an email expressing my displeasure, I searched the school’s website for contact information. Nothing found in various pages and searches. Is he hiding? How does anyone either inside or outside his huge organization communicate with him?

OK, I found it. not easy.
