Room and board rates at Michigan State University will go up by 2.5-percent in the fall, the smallest increase in almost 20 years. MSU Trustees today approved the increase.

Retired star gymnasts testified before Congress on Tuesday that they were sexually abused by a former USA Gymnastics doctor and recommended a bill that requires tougher sex-abuse reporting for Olympic sports.

A sports doctor at Michigan State University sexually assaulted a teen gymnast during treatments for back pain in 2000, according to a campus investigation that's separate from a criminal probe and a blizzard of lawsuits against him.

A woman whose complaint about a campus sports doctor led to an internal investigation at Michigan State University has filed a lawsuit, accusing him of assault during the 2014 visit.

A Michigan State University doctor resigned after learning the school was considering her termination because she didn't disclose in 2015 that USA Gymnastics was investigating a fellow physician who has since been charged with molesting young gymnasts.
