U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos has been invited to speak next month at the opening of Michigan State University's new research facility in Grand Rapids.

University spokesman Jason Cody says the event will be held September 20th.

But not everyone supports the move. A group of students and staff who will work in the new facility have created a petition to urge MSU President Lou Anna K. Simon and the Dean of the College of Human medicine to rescind the invitation.
