Statement on long-term rating (May 4, 2018)

We understand the viewpoint of Moody’s Investment Services that the future cost of ongoing litigation is uncertain. The university is focused on needed improvements to our overall culture and safety. We are committed to making the necessary changes to re-instill confidence in our stability. We appreciate Moody’s Investment Services positive recognition of MSU’s continued prudent financial management.
