EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan State University’s former president Lou Anna Simon will have an office in a newly renovated campus building after resigning in the Larry Nassar sex abuse scandal.

University spokeswoman Emily Guerrant tells the Lansing State Journal that Simon is slated to relocate to Willis House once its nearly $1 million renovation is complete. Simon remains a tenured professor.

Simon’s post-presidency benefits kicked in with her resignation Jan. 24, the same day Nassar, the university’s former sports doctor, was imprisoned for 40-175 years for sexually abusing young athletes over more than two decades.

The Detroit News reports that Simon’s contract says she could earn her full $750,000 presidential salary during a one-year research leave and the following year as a faculty member. Subsequent years, she can earn 75 percent of that amount.
