John Engler, a former Republican governor and alumnus of Michigan State University, was named interim president Wednesday as the university struggles to move forward after a sexual abuse scandal — a decision that provoked an outcry from some students and faculty members.

After trustees voted unanimously to appoint Engler, a student leader climbed onto a table and told board members seated around it that students oppose the choice, drawing cheers.

A faculty leader announced that the Faculty Senate would call for a vote of no confidence in the board. If such a vote succeeds, Faculty Senate member Laura McCabe said, the entire board would be asked to resign immediately.

Her words sparked loud applause in the meeting room.
