University President Teresa Sullivan outlined an action plan to reduce sexual violence at UVA.
The plan involves rooting out date rape drugs on campus, forcing fraternities to provide safety to guests, putting a local police substation on campus, and start conducting anonymous surveys to determine how often students experience sexual abuse.
“There's a piece of our culture that is broken, and I ask your help in coming together as a strong and resilient community to fix it,” says Sullivan.
Sullivan has suspended all fraternity activities until January.
Meanwhile, students have started an online petition calling for the permanent closure of the fraternity house where an alleged gang rape happened two years ago.
