Important note: The MSU Police Department will again use metal detectors to gain entry to trustee meetings. Participants and observers should allow extra time before the meeting for screening; MSU Police recommend they not bring backpacks/purses to speed up entry. This practice began in September based on reviews and recommendations by the MSU Police Department.
