UVA President Teresa Sullivan yesterday announced key components of an action plan designed to achieve a climate of safety at the University of Virginia. The plan includes creation of an ad-hoc group to explore policies, practices and organizational structure, as well as the resources necessary to support the ultimate goal of providing an outstanding education while ensuring the safety and well-being of students. The plan also includes formation of an administrative task force charged with implementing the advisory group’s recommendations. Sullivan’s action follows recent reporting in Rolling Stone magazine telling the story of a UVA student getting gang raped at a fraternity house. Since the article’s publication, the magazine’s editors have backed away from the story.
