To the Virginia Tech community,

We periodically share reports of sexual assault in compliance with the Clery Act, and to make you aware of this important information. We do not consider these notifications routine or obligatory. They are an important part of our commitment to inform and protect our community. Each notification represents trauma that can change a person’s life forever. 

Tomorrow’s Daily Email will include updated information about Virginia Tech’s commitment and initiatives to prevent sexual assault, including resources for survivors and allies. Please take time to read this important story. As leaders at Virginia Tech, we are committed to living up to our great responsibility to confront and address sexual violence in our community. We are stronger when we each take responsibility for doing our part. It will take all of us, working together, to make Virginia Tech a safer campus for our community and those we care about.

Thank you for working to make our community safe, and supporting the survivors of sexual assault.

Tim Sands,
