One sexual assault anywhere is one too many. In our community, we will not tolerate such behavior. Not today. Not tomorrow. Not ever. We know that the victim will be forever changed by this experience. That is a realization that hurts every one of us.

We must work together to prevent sexual assault from happening not only on this campus, but campuses nationwide. We will work tirelessly to hold those who commit such crimes fully accountable under the law and on campus. We must treat one another with respect and challenge those who do not. We must look out for one another and raise our collective voices to say no more. Not here. Not anywhere.
