Nov. 21, 2022: Statement regarding harmful comments toward MSU hockey player

“I am dismayed to learn one of our hockey players reported being the recipient of racial slurs from an opposing player at a recent game.  That is unacceptable. 

We support our students and student-athletes, and I stand with Jagger Joshua.  We’ve seen the consequences of hateful rhetoric and racism, and I commend Jagger for calling out injustice.  At MSU, we support our students, student-athletes and other community members with a commitment to creating a culture free of racism and intolerance and a campus where everyone can feel safe and welcome," said Interim President Teresa K. Woodruff, Ph.D.
