“The university feels it responded to these matters appropriately and in a proactive manner. I can also tell you the University of Arkansas has zero-tolerance for sexual assault and sex offenses," said Mark Rushing, Assistant Vice Chancellor at the University of Arkansas. “While no aspect of society is free from sexual misconduct, the University of Arkansas is committed to maintaining a safe educational environment free from all forms of sexual intimidation and exploitation."
State Representative Greg Leding told 5NEWS he planed to work with staff at the university to further study sexual assault on campus.
“This is the state’s flagship campus. Our priority is making sure the students feel safe, are safe, and these kinds of incidences are properly handled,” Leding said.
