The Associated Students of MSU, or ASMSU, hosted Interim President Teresa Woodruff at its first meeting of the semester.
Her main goal was to convey to the student body that she supports them. She emphasized she hears the students and wants to ensure that the university is as safe and welcoming as it can possibly b.
She spoke on different initiatives that she has been paying attention to in fields such as diversity, equity and inclusion, and relationship violence and sexual misconduct. She said the university would be breaking ground on a new freestanding cultural center on campus.
After her presentation, two attorneys from Student Legal Services shared about the services they offered. Their priority is helping students on campus with legal needs completely free of cost. Their services also as educate students about their own legal issues so they have the skills needed to handle situations on their own own.
“Prior to engaging in our service, almost 80% of students reported moderate,” attorney Brian Jeffries said. “Afterwards 99% of those respondents said they’d better understand their legality issue.”
Student Legal Services can be found in the Student Services Building on the third floor.
