Of the 65 members of the Faculty Senate at the meeting, 61 voted for the measure.
In an effort to move beyond what interim Michigan State University President John Engler called the "cancer" that was Larry Nassar, the university on Wednesday announced a reorganization of its medical schools and clinics in an effort to improve patient care and safety.
Trustee Brian Mosallam said he met with some members of the university's steering committee - a group that includes elected faculty members - after Engler was named interim president to let them know that the selection process should have included more input from them.
The Michigan State football and basketball programs have been accused of covering up sexual assaults by athletes, which is how Dantonio and Izzo's name got dragged in with Nassar's.
"One of the great challenges we face today in America is the cost of health care, which is bound closely to issues of access and quality", Engler said.
"They should've been compelled to care years ago, months ago, and it just said a lot that when all the political winds were blowing, all of the survivor stories came out, and they resolutely stood behind former President (Lou Anna K.) Simon", LaDuca said.

Engler sent a letter to the "MSU campus community" on Tuesday to provide an update on ways in which the university is cooperating with several different ongoing investigations. In it, Engler says MSU wants to return to mediation with the women suing the University, USA Gymnastics, Twistars and others over Nassar's abuse.
"The vote of the faculty senate is non-binding on the board", he said.
"I told them that we as a board failed them as it related to the process", Mosallam said.
The coaches were asked to refrain from comment while the reports were examined.
Additionally, an ESPN "Outside the Lines" report alleged that MSU head football coach Mark Dantonio and Tom Izzo mishandled and covered up sexual assault allegations within their programs.
"That has been a burden that must be lifted", Engler said in his letter.
