Reaffirm Geneseo's Commitment to SAA and Condemn Dr Everett's Scheduled Lecture "Against 'Sexual' 'Assault' 'Awareness'"
Apr 18, 2013 — Many of these initiatives were implemented even before changes to federal Title IX regulations and the recent Campus Sexual Violence Elimination (SaVE) Act.
At the same time, however, Geneseo defends academic freedom and the right to offer a wide variety of opinions on campus. As a public liberal arts college, Geneseo is committed to the open discussion and robust exchange of ideas that are a hallmark of American higher education. In this situation, the college’s administration cannot comment on a presentation that has not yet been given.
Geneseo knows where it stands on issues of sexual assault. We abhor rape and sexual violence of all kinds. We take seriously and will investigate all charges of sexual assault and sexual harassment. As president, I support our policies and educational initiatives.
The college is dedicated to the important work of sexual assault awareness and prevention and the support provided to victims. To learn more about our work, visit these web pages:
