David Jesse Detroit Free Press Published 6:00 AM EDT Oct 29, 2018 Three months after naming an acting chief compliance officer, Michigan State University Interim President John Engler is scuttling the plan for a new structure the university says will strengthen its efforts to change its culture. A new compliance office was formed in the aftermath of the scandal involving former MSU doctor Larry Nassar, accused of molesting more than 200 female students and athletes, and former MSU dean William Strampel, who is facing four criminal charges.
