MSU tells students the 'correct term' for 'Chinese Virus'
In an email sent by Michigan State University on April 2, eight recommendations were given to handle COVID-19. Staff, faculty, and students were encouraged to sign MSU’s “Hate Has No Home Here” pledge.
Sent by Residence Education and Housing Services (REHS), the recommendations will make “this process more manageable for all of us.” The term "novel coronavirus" was stated as the “correct term." The school asserted that “no other names are acceptable."
MSU encourages students to be an “upstander" by standing up to “racist, dog-whistle, ageist, xenophobic, classist or other speech that divides our community.”
