We’re ready to discuss possible reinstatement

Two years and six days since announcing the elimination of the women’s and men’s swimming and diving programs, Michigan State is ready to discuss the possibility of reinstatement.

At its Friday morning meeting, Michigan State’s Board of Trustees announced athletic director Alan Haller will meet with advocates of the programs by the end of 2022, and a decision on the program’s status will be made by the conclusion of the academic year in spring 2023.

Advocates for the swimming and diving programs, and former swimmers who remain enrolled in school, amid hope the programs would be reinstated, have struggled to get face time with university officials. Four swimmers met with president Samuel L. Stanley in June, but came away discouraged. Stanley has resigned as president, and Friday’s meeting was expected to be his last at Michigan State.
