Michigan State University’s Rema Vassar resigning as board chair

Michigan State University Board of Trustees Chair Rema Vassar is resigning as the board’s leader Sunday night as fellow board members plan to meet virtually after a critical report was released last week.

It ends 14 months of leadership by the first Black woman to chair the MSU board, and one of the first chairs who was from outside of Lansing whom critics hoped would move the university in a new direction.

Reached by phone, Vassar told The Detroit News on Sunday evening that “there have been continuing efforts to get me out of this position.”
