NCAA President Mark Emmert was told in November 2010 about allegations that Michigan State athletes sexually assaulted women, The Athletic reported.

Major scrutiny of Michigan State University followed the Larry Nassar sexual assault scandal, with the school's president and athletics director resigning amid the fallout.

Redmond told The Athletic that Emmert invited her to Indianapolis where she pushed for initiatives, possible sanctions and other ways for the NCAA to assert itself against sexual violence.

According to the article, Redmond reached out to Emmert because he was new at the time and seemed open to changes.

Redmond also raised concerns about former Michigan State president Lou Anna Simon and how the school handled a police report a woman filed accusing two MSU basketball players of sexual assault. "As soon as I heard that, I thought I might have an ally".

The Outside the Lines' report detailed a culture of sexual assault within Michigan State's football and basketball programs. She posted a partial version of the letter on Twitter on Friday. "I think Mark Emmert came in with the right tone but quickly realized 'there's not a lot I can do here". "He met with me, which was great and I appreciated that". Emmert, in an email Saturday to the NCAA Board of Governors that was provided to the Associated Press, acknowledged receiving the letter - which he says "was not addressed to (him) or any individual" - but noted the MSU cases "were widely reported in the press and already being investigated by law enforcement and university officials".
