Tuesday afternoon, Michigan State University's Faculty Senate convened for a no-confidence vote in the school's Board of Trustees.

The vote passed with 61 yes votes of the 65 faculty members in attendance according to the Lansing State Journal's RJ Wolcott.

A number of reasons including dissatisfaction with former MI governor John Engler's appointment as interim president and the university's handling of the Larry Nassar situation sparked the vote.

Though largely symbolic, the results of the vote will be sent to Engler's office as well as the Board of Trustees.

Neither Board Chairman Brian Breslin nor Vice Chairman Joel Ferguson would comment.
