MSU administration supports diversity training regarding Islam

Today the Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MI) welcomed the decision by administrators at Michigan State University to hold diversity training—including an Islamic awareness workshop funded by the university and put on in conjunction with the Muslim Students Association (MSA)—for its faculty and student body. CAIR-MI, along with representatives from the MSA at Michigan State University met with university officials to discuss instituting diversity programming for faculty as a result of an incident earlier this year involving a tenured professor sending a hate email to the MSA.

In the email sent on February 28, 2006, Dr. Indrek Wichman refers to Muslims as “dissatisfied, agressive (sic), brutal, and uncivilized slave-trading Moslems.”

We are glad that Michigan State University affirmed its commitment to inclusion and having a healthy academic environment for its students by instituting these measures. Although administration earlier stated that they were dismayed by Dr. Wichman’s boorish email, it is good to see them follow up their dismay with positive action.

Actually, it is a policy of Michigan State University to be an institution of inclusion. It is also an institution that supports affirmative action.
