Dear Howard University Community:

Howard's Commitment to Preventing Sexual Assault

2017-09-01 00:00:00

Dear Howard University Community,

I write to share my thoughts on a matter that is extremely relevant, sensitive, and serious. Sexual assault and other forms of interpersonal violence are critical issues that will not be tolerated on our campus. It is a violation of the law and University policy. But more importantly, it is a breach that can diminish one’s humanity.

As many of you know, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency today after unrest in Charlottesville, Va. This morning, counter-protesters gathered in Emancipation Park in anticipation of a Unite the Right rally, a gathering of White nationalist groups who are promoting White Supremacy. The aim of the rally was to protest the removal of a statue honoring Confederate General Robert E. Lee.
