OHIO response to Marzec ALS video

Ohio University has issued the following statement regarding the Student Senate president’s response to President Roderick J. McDavis’ ALS Ice Bucket Challenge:

"The role and value of a higher education institution is to foster civil discussions about important and complex issues. To be sure, the Student Senate president in her video altered the original spirit with which President Roderick J. McDavis issued the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Her actions do not reflect the position of Ohio University or President McDavis. We recognize the rights of individual students to speak out on matters of public concern and we will continue to do so, but want to be clear that the message shared today by her is not an institutional position or a belief held by President McDavis."
