Fire Stephen Hsu.

Scientific racism has no place in an equitable and just institution. It has been allowed to flourish at MSU for too long.

Project maintained by firestephenhsu Hosted on GitHub Pages — Theme by mattgraham

UPDATE: Hsu has resigned.

See the statement from MSU here.

We sincerely thank all of you who had the courage to speak out and took the time to engage with this important work.

The reception we received was beyond our imaginings. It is clear this is a deep pain that has been bubbling under the surface at our institution for many years, and we are not done engaging with and trying to heal that damage.

But for now, thank you.

Note: If you would like your name removed from this public-facing site, please let us know. Otherwise, the petition will be updated soon with all names submitted prior to Hsu’s resignation.

An Open Letter to Michigan State University

We are faculty, students, support staff, and allies within and outside Michigan State University demanding that Stephen Hsu be removed from his position as Senior Vice President for Research and Innovation.

The concerns expressed by the Graduate Employees Union [twitter] [unrolled] and other individuals familiar with Hsu indicates an individual that cannot uphold our University Mission or our commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Given this discordance with university values, Stephen Hsu should not be privileged with the power and responsibility of recruiting and funding scholars, overseeing ethical conduct, or coordinating graduate study.

By signing this open letter we ask MSU to follow through to its commitment to be a diverse and inclusive institution and to change its institutional and administrative practices so that the passion and talent of Black scholars, Indigenous scholars, and other scholars of color (BIPOC) can be recognized and fostered within these university halls.

We currently have 820 signatures. You can add your signature here. * Please note due to the nature of the open letter we are unable to completely verify submissions. If your name has been falsely submitted, or if there is an error with your submission, please email and/or

See another internal letter started by MSU faculty, currently signed by 546 faculty, staff, and graduate students at MSU, here. Those at MSU are welcome to sign both petitions; this petition is intended to be available to those both inside and outside the institution. The number of signatories of each petition is not meant to be or expected to be mutually exclusive.

Signatories of this letter agree also not to interfere with or harass any counter-petitions which arise. We condemn such measures and will follow up on any reports that our supporters are engaging in any such behavior.


Last Update: June 19, 5:27 PM EST

Bolded names indicate population geneticists. We highlight these individuals by their request to emphasize that Hsu’s views have no basis in the scientific community.
