The University takes these matters with utmost seriousness. There is no place for sexual assault on or off our campus and we will continue to do everything in our power to prevent them from happening. We support the brave survivors who have come forward to detail what happened to them. Protecting students is critical to the University’s educational mission. Our staff in law enforcement, Title IX, student affairs, and elsewhere works tirelessly every day to try to create a safe and supportive community for students, faculty and staff.
This lawsuit has just been filed today and the University has not yet been served. We will review it closely in the days ahead and will have a further response once that review has been completed.
