Update on request from National Policy Institute to speak on campus (Sept. 6, 2017)

Michigan State University is reviewing the lawsuit filed by Kyle Bristow on behalf of Cameron Padgett regarding the space request by the National Policy Institute. MSU denied the National Policy Institute’s request to rent space on campus after consultation with law enforcement officials. The decision was made due to significant concerns about public safety in the wake of the tragic violence in Charlottesville. While we remain firm in our commitment to freedom of expression, our first obligation is to the safety and security of our students and our community.
