EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Michigan State's board of trustees are meeting Friday morning to "discuss matters related to the Nassar investigation," a university spokesman said.
The meeting comes in the wake of calls for university president Lou Anna Simon to step down, as she has been widely criticized this week for both her and the school's response to former Michigan State doctor Larry Nassar's serial sexual abuse.
Larissa Boyce, who said she told a Michigan State coach about Larry Nassar's sexual abuse in 1997, said MSU president Lou Anna Simon told her that she was unavailable to attend Thursday's sentencing hearing.
OTL: Michigan State among those that enabled serial sex abuser Understanding how Dr. Larry Nassar gained unfettered access to sexually assault young female athletes -- despite repeated warning signs -- means confronting an uncomfortable truth: He didn't gain that access alone.
Prior to the meeting, the board of trustees filed a letter asking Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette to review the Nassar case.
