UVA suspends fraternities after rape claim

WDBJ 7 National News - - Sun, 23 Nov 2014 02:05:01 GMT

The University of Virginia is suspending all fraternities and associated parties until January 9 following a Rolling Stone magazine article that described a student's account of being gang raped and her frustration at trying to bring her alleged attackers to accountability.

"The wrongs described in Rolling Stone are appalling and have caused all of us to re-examine our responsibility to this community," school President Teresa A. Sullivan wrote in a statement to the university community. "Rape is an abhorrent crime that has no place in the world, let alone on the campuses and grounds of our nation's colleges and universities."

Rape is a longstanding issue on college campuses, but in recent years student activists, survivors and faculty have portrayed sexual violence as a cultural problem on campuses nationwide -- not just a series of isolated incidents. In September, President Obama launched "It's On Us," a campaign aimed at tackling the problem of campus sexual assaults.

Several days ago, Sullivan asked the Charlottesville Police Department to investigate the alleged rape.

"There are individuals in our community who know what happened that night, and I am calling on them to come forward to the police to report the facts," Sullivan wrote. "Only you can shed light on the truth, and it is your responsibility to do so."

In the article, titled, "A Rape on Campus: A Brutal Assault and Struggle for Justice at UVA," the student said an upperclassman invited her to a party at the the Phi Kappa Psi house in fall 2012 and seven men raped her over a three-hour period in a bedroom

She didn't want to go to law enforcement but told the school's Sexual Misconduct Board what happened, Rolling Stone reported.

She said she became discouraged because she had difficulty obtaining statistics about campus sexual assaults and learned other students said they were raped at fraternities but with little or no discipline handed out, the magazine said.

The article said, "At UVA, rapes are kept quiet, both by students -- who brush off sexual assaults as regrettable but inevitable casualties of their cherished party culture -- and by an administration that critics say is less concerned with protecting students than it is with protecting its own reputation from scandal."

Rolling Stone said the school didn't decide to investigate the fraternity until administrators learned the magazine planned to write an article.

Students will be on their Thanksgiving and winter holiday break during much of the fraternal organization suspension. Classes for the spring semester start January 12.

Sullivan said she was "suspending all fraternal organizations and associated social activities."

University spokesman Anthony P. de Bruyn told CNN in an email Saturday that Sullivan's order affected about 3,500 students in 31 fraternities, 16 sororities, seven multicultural Greek Council fraternities and sororities and eight Pan-Hellenic Council fraternities and sororities.

The school has 21,238 students total, about 15,000 of them undergraduates, according to the school website.

The fraternities and sororities are located on private property, so the members living in the houses will not have to seek new living arrangements during the suspension, de Bruyn said.

The university is also hiring an attorney to review the school's policies on handling sexual assault complaints.

The national office of Phi Kappa Psi issued a statement decrying all forms of violence but noting that, "to our knowledge there have been no criminal investigations or charges of sexual assault brought against any member of the chapter."

It said the UVA chapter will respond to authorities. "Phi Kappa Psi will fully cooperate with the administration of the University of Virginia in identifying and immediately eradicating any alleged or proven misconduct," the statement said.

Scoreless in regulation, Wake claims 6-3 win over Virginia Tech in 2 OTs

ABC 7 WJLA Sports - The Associated Press - Sat, 22 Nov 2014 19:37:36 EST

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - As the missed field goals piled up for Mike Weaver, Wake Forest took solace in one thing: Virginia Tech couldn't score either.

Then came overtime - and Weaver couldn't miss.

His 39-yard field goal in the second OT lifted the Demon Deacons past Virginia Tech 6-3 on Saturday.

Weaver kicked field goals in both overtimes after missing at the end of the fourth quarter of the first Bowl Subdivision game since 2005 to end regulation with no score. That helped give Wake Forest (3-8, 1-6 ACC) its first win over the Hokies since 1983.

":I just said, 'Mike, it's going to come down to you again. Be ready,'": coach Dave Clawson said. ":There was a very good chance it would come down to a field-goal-kicking contest.":

Michael Brewer went 15 of 28 for 126 yards and J.C. Coleman rushed for 98 yards for the Hokies (5-6, 2-5).

They had the ball first in the second overtime, but Marquel Lee and Desmond Floyd sacked Brewer on third down at the 35. That forced the Hokies into a 53-yard field goal that Joey Slye pulled wide left.

":You can't take a sack,": offensive coordinator Scot Loeffler said. ":But you can't push blame on anyone. The moral of the story is that we didn't get it done.":

Wake Forest went 4 yards in three plays before Weaver's kick from the left hash ended it.

For Weaver, it was redemption for a rough day: He missed on consecutive snaps earlier in the game and missed with a chance to win it in regulation.

":I'm hoping it does (come down to him) so I can prove to people that it was a fluke that I missed,": Weaver said.

Wake Forest hurried downfield and moved inside the Virginia Tech 20 to set up Weaver's 37-yard field goal at the buzzer, but the snap was high and the kick sailed wide right - making it the first scoreless FBS game after 60 minutes since Arkansas State and Florida Atlantic did it nine years ago.

":We put offensive football back 100 years,": Clawson said.

Weaver drilled a line-drive 49-yarder in the first overtime before Slye matched him from 28 yards to finally put the Hokies on the board.

Virginia Tech needed extra time to extend its school-record non-shutout streak - which dates to 1995 - but was denied bowl eligibility and will have to beat rival Virginia to reach the six-win mark for the 22nd straight year.

Defensive tackle Corey Marshall said he was ":just embarrassed to be a part of": some of the season-long struggles.

":Chemistry's good, but we've just got to make it work on the field,": Marshall said. ":There's got to be some production and some results to go along with this stuff.":

John Wolford was 18 of 32 for 160 yards for the Demon Deacons, who snapped a six-game losing streak - their longest since dropping nine in a row in 2010 - and gave their first-year coach his first ACC victory by finding a way to win a matchup of two of the league's worst offenses.

":There were so many plays in that ball game that you just kind of scratch your head at,": Tech coach Frank Beamer said.

Both teams had been decent defensively: Virginia Tech has the ACC's fifth-best total defense while Wake Forest ranks ninth.

The Hokies entered ranked 12th in the league in both scoring (25 ppg) and total offense (372 ypg), while Wake Forest was last in both categories with averages of 15 points and 205 yards.

This was the kind of bizarre game when Weaver - who entered 13-of-14 on the year - could pull a 42-yard field goal wide left, get a second chance when Kendall Fuller was offside - and hook a 37-yarder even wider left.

At one point in the second quarter, the teams combined for more punts (eight) than first downs (seven). Virginia Tech didn't run its first play inside the Wake Forest 30 until less than 10 minutes remained in the fourth, and didn't take a snap inside the red zone until overtime - when both teams start from the 25.

":You name it,": Loeffler said, ":we didn't do it.":

U.Va. suspends fraternal activities after Rolling Stone story of alleged frat-house gang rape

ABC 7 WJLA Education - The Associated Press - Sat, 22 Nov 2014 15:08:36 EST

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP/WJLA) - The University of Virginia has suspended activities at all campus fraternal organizations amid an investigation into a published report in which a student described being sexually assaulted by seven men in 2012.

President Teresa Sullivan said in a letter to the university community on Saturday that the Board of Visitors is scheduled to meet Tuesday to discuss the allegations contained in a Rolling Stone article, along with the university's policies and procedures concerning sexual assaults. She says groups of students, faculty, alumni and others will hold similar discussions.

Sullivan has asked Charlottesville police to investigate the alleged rape at the Phi Kappa Psi house. The fraternity has voluntarily surrendered its fraternal agreement with the university.

Sullivan says the suspension of all fraternal groups is effective until Jan. 9.

University of Virginia President Teresa A. Sullivan on Saturday issued the following statement:

November 22, 2014

Dear members of the University Community,

Over the past week many of you have reached out to me directly to offer your opinions, reactions, and suggestions related to combatting sexual violence on Grounds. I want you to know that I have heard you, and that your words have enkindled this message.

At UVa we speak in idealistic terms: honor and tradition inform our thinking, and balance our daily actions. And it is easy here, where success is demanded as much as it is sought, to let our idealism outweigh our reality.

Jefferson, as he always does, provides a compelling backdrop:

It is more honorable to repair a wrong than to persist in it.

The wrongs described in Rolling Stone are appalling and have caused all of us to reexamine our responsibility to this community. Rape is an abhorrent crime that has no place in the world, let alone on the campuses and grounds of our nation's colleges and universities. We know, and have felt very powerfully this week, that we are better than we have been described, and that we have a responsibility to live our tradition of honor every day, and as importantly every night.

As you are aware, I have asked the Charlottesville Police Department to investigate the 2012 assault that is described in Rolling Stone. There are individuals in our community who know what happened that night, and I am calling on them to come forward to the police to report the facts. Only you can shed light on the truth, and it is your responsibility to do so. Alongside this investigation, we as a community must also do a systematic evaluation of our culture to ensure that one of our founding principles- the pursuit of truth - remains a pillar on which we can stand. There is no greater threat to honor than secrecy and indifference.

I write you today in solidarity. I write you in great sorrow, great rage, but most importantly, with great determination. Meaningful change is necessary, and we can lead that change for all universities. We can demand that incidents like those described in Rolling Stone never happen and that if they do, the responsible are held accountable to the law. This will require institutional change, cultural change, and legislative change, and it will not be easy. We are making those changes.

This morning the Inter-Fraternity Council announced that all University fraternities have voluntarily suspended social activities this weekend. This is an important first step, but our challenges will extend beyond this weekend. Beginning immediately, I am suspending all fraternal organizations and associated social activities until January 9th, ahead of the beginning of our spring semester. In the intervening period we will assemble groups of students, faculty, alumni, and other concerned parties to discuss our next steps in preventing sexual assault and sexual violence on Grounds. On Tuesday, the Board of Visitors will meet to discuss the University's policies and procedures regarding sexual assault as well as the specific, recent allegations.

In the words of one student who wrote to me this week, ":Policy is needed, but people make change.": We need the collective strength of the members of our community to ensure that we have the best policies. So as you prepare for what I hope is a restful Thanksgiving holiday, I hope that you will take time to review and respond to the recently posted Student Sexual Misconduct Policy, which is currently open for public comment. You may find that policy at this link. Providing candid feedback to this policy is a practical step that you can take to help and I hope that you will.

To our fourth-year students: as you prepare to celebrate your last home football game today, I hope that you will embrace your role as leaders and demonstrate a renewed sense of responsibility to our community, and a renewed commitment to make that community better. It starts today.

Finally, I want to express my grief at hearing the news of the death of second-year student Peter D'Agostino, whose passing adds overwhelming emotion to what has been a difficult semester for all of us.

We are united in our compassion, resolve, and determination: Compassion for survivors of assault: resolve to make our community better: determination to begin to solve this problem here and now.

I hope that you will join me.

Teresa A. Sullivan

President
