*A sexual assault reported in this week’s Campus Safety Log occurred over a year ago, according to Director of Campus Safety John Schlaf, who said the report was made in compliance with federal reporting standards.
According to Schlaf, the incident occurred between two students who knew each other and agreed to meet, after which there was unwelcome sexual contact between the two. While no details were provided about the incident or the students involved, Schlaf said neither of the students is on campus anymore.
The incident was reported secondhand by someone designated as a “campus security authority” under the Clery Act. These authorities are mandated to report incidents to Campus Safety so a report can be made.
Schlaf said campus security authorities can include anyone from Campus Safety officers themselves to officials or staff members with “significant responsibilities” regarding student life on campus.
