Michigan lawmakers say MSU leadership search needs agricultural inclusion

A bipartisan group of Michigan lawmakers has introduced a resolution asking the Michigan State University Board of Trustees to include agricultural representation in their presidential search.

MSU announced its search committee last week, and the list did not include a member of the ag industry.

Michigan Senate Natural Resources and Agriculture chair Sue Shink, one of the sponsors, tells Brownfield…

“MSU is an agricultural school, it always has been, and that’s an important part of MSU’s work and of our state,” she says.  “It seemed important to have somebody who is directly involved in farming be at the table.”

The lawmakers say the grievous oversight must be corrected and give Michigan’s agricultural community representation.
