White supremacist Richard Spencer and lawyer Kyle Bristow are pressuring the University of Michigan to find a date and “reasonable location on campus" for Spencer's potential speech on campus by Jan. 15, Martin Luther King Jr.
Beginning Dec. 4, Nadia Bazzy will begin her role as director of the Office of Multi-Ethnic Student Affairs, replacing former director Trelawny Boynton, who served the University of Michigan community for almost 20 years.
The Michigan Daily sat down for an interview with University President Mark Schlissel to address several current issues on campus, including a potential visit from Richard Spencer, Central Student Government's vote for #UMDivest and more.
UPDATE: In a campus-wide email, Schlissel has confirmed the University is in talks to find a space for Spencer to speak on campus. If there is no agreement that guarantees student safety, he wrote, Spencer will not speak.
