RE: OAKWOOD UNIVERSITY RESPONDS TO SEXUAL ASSAULT ON CAMPUS

We were saddened to learn that during an event last weekend on our campus, a visitor reported being sexually assaulted by another visitor. Neither visitor is an Oakwood student. Nevertheless, sexual violence against anyone on our campus is unacceptable. The Huntsville Police Department is assisting the Oakwood University Police Department in the investigation of these allegations. University leaders are monitoring the case and receiving regular updates.

These are serious allegations, and we recognize the impact this news is having on our community. We take every report of sexual assault seriously and are committed to building a campus free from sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking. Please understand that as long as this investigation is ongoing, we cannot comment on its particulars.

We continue to pray for all those affected by this incident.
