Security Update on Sexual Assault Indicent
As you may know from our Parent Update communications shared last week, one of our students was sexually assaulted near the Minneapolis campus on Monday, Nov. 19, 2012.
In response to the incident St. Catherine University worked closely with the Minneapolis Police Department, other local colleges and universities, and its own community, to gather, share information and respond appropriately. A number of community meetings were held to share information about the University's response.
The Minneapolis Police Department continues to investigate the assault, and the suspect from the incident is in custody. St. Catherine University has also enhanced its security presence and escort service.
As part of our response, the University is reviewing suggestions that came from students, faculty and staff to address safety concerns with an eye towards short-term and long-term solutions.
As always, we welcome and encourage your input. Please feel free to contact us at either: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
