Federal government launches Title IX investigation against MSU
Following reports that Michigan State University improperly handled reports of sexual assault by Larry Nassar while he worked at MSU, the Department of Education has announced a Title IX investigation into the university's response.
"The crimes for which Dr. Nassar has been convicted are unimaginable ... Every student across every campus should know that I am committed to ensuring all students have access to a learning environment free from sexual misconduct and discrimination and that all institutions that fall short will be held accountable for violations of federal law."
— Education Secretary Betsy DeVos
