“Saint Louis University seeks to foster a safe and supportive atmosphere where students, faculty and staff can flourish in an inclusive environment that is free from harassment and harm. The University takes any accusation of sexual assault very seriously.
As soon as the University received the report from the female student on Saturday, May 13, our Department of Public Safety helped her immediately contact the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department. We have cooperated fully with the police department’s criminal investigation. The male student was arrested by police Saturday afternoon.
In addition to working with St. Louis police, we immediately launched our own internal investigation through our Title IX office, in accordance with University policy. The report of the crime was also posted on SLU’s online daily campus crime log. We are working with the female student to provide support services and other assistance.
Federal student privacy regulations limit what information any college or university may release about its students, including student conduct information. While we are unable to discuss the details of any specific report, under University policy, remedial and protective measures during an investigation can include an interim suspension for the accused party and a no-contact order with the reporting party.”
