White supremacist Richard Spencer will speak for two hours on Michigan State University's campus on March 5, the university and Spencer's lawyers have agreed.

The agreement came in a settlement of a lawsuit filed by attorney Kyle Bristow against MSU after it denied Spencer's representatives space to speak on campus.

According to the terms of the agreement:

  • Spencer will speak from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. March 5 in the auditorium in the Pavilion for Agriculture and Livestock Education.
  • Spencer will pay the university $1,650 for the rental.
  • MSU will provide police and security for the event. Spencer's group won't pay anything towards it.
  • MSU will set up a ticketing process for the event and control entry to the event.
  • Spencer's group will provide insurance for the event.
  • Spencer's group will not hold any other gathering or event at MSU.

Spencer's group has a similar request pending at the University of Michigan, where President Mark Schlissel has said the university would negotiate with the group for a safe way to allow them on campus.

A U-M spokeswoman told the Free Press earlier this week there was no update to those talks.
