Jan. 23, 2023:Statement regarding recent violence toward the APIDA and Asian communities

"I join Spartans across our campus and beyond in shock and grief over the recent violence toward the Asian Pacific Islander Desi American and Asian communities in California and Indiana. These tragic incidents have clouded the joy accompanying the start of Lunar New Year celebrations, and I mourn with our APIDA and Asian community. Leaders across campus are committed to engaging with MSU community members to discuss concerns arising from these incidents, however distant the tragedies may have been. We stand together against violence and with our APIDA and Asian Spartans in this time of sadness, outrage and concern."
