ROLLA, Mo. – University of Missouri System President Tim Wolfe issued the following statement today, following release of the independent counsel’s findings from its investigation into the experiences of former MU student-athlete Sasha Menu Courey while attending the university:

“I want to thank the Dowd Bennett law firm and its well-qualified, experienced and diverse team for performing this independent investigation to determine whether university employees acted consistent with law and university policy regarding Ms. Menu Courey’s time at the university,” Wolfe said. “We will be examining these findings, and together with the recommendations of our sexual assault and mental health services task force and my recent executive order strengthening our Title IX reporting policy, will improve the way we serve people on our campuses in terms of sexual assault prevention, reporting, and education and mental health service delivery in the future. We have taken this decisive action because the safety and security of the students, faculty and staff on our four campuses is an absolute priority.”
