LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — Officials from Michigan State University, Central Michigan University, and the University of Michigan-Flint spoke before the Michigan House sub-committee on Higher Education and Community Colleges.
This comes in the wake of the deadly shooting on MSU’s campus last month.
Eight students were shot, including three who were killed. There have been shootings on the other two campuses in the last several years as well.
On Thursday, school officials laid out the changes they’d like to make.
“Initially we had a strategic plan that would take 3-5 years to implement,” said Marlon Lynch, VP of Public Safety and Chief of Police at MSU. “Based on need, things have been accelerated. We’re working with our partners within our facilities group, as well as with vendors to see what we can do as soon as possible, based on the need for that to occur sooner rather than later.”
6 News will have more updates from the meeting later today.
