‘I am a Michigan man through and through’: Jonathan Vaughn talks campaign for UMich Board of Regents

Jon Vaughn, the former Michigan athlete and survivor of the late Dr. Robert Anderson who has been camping outside President Mark Schlissel’s house for over 50 days in protest of the University’s handling of sexual assault allegations against Anderson, announced his candidacy for the U-M Board of Regents in mid-November. Vaughn said the University’s handling of past and current sexual assault cases and the administration’s marginalization of non-white students are all examples of failings of the Board of Regents. If elected, Vaughn said he hopes to engage with the University community and to prioritize campus safety.

Michigan in Color columnist Easheta Shah explains recent developments in the controversy surrounding Angell’s legacy on campus, including a Central Student Government resolution calling for the removal of Angell’s name from the University building and other steps toward a “reclamation of a space that the late president himself may not have expected our presence in.”
