CSU president reiterates the requirement to report crimes

In an email sent to faculty and students yesterday, CSU President Tony Frank highlighted the necessity for any members of staff, faculty and the student body to report suspected crimes.

His email, which was sent in light of the allegations facing Penn State University, said every institution and individual, “must be prepared to respond when serious problems and allegations arise.”

He said this responsibility promotes the safety of our community and its individuals.

“I want to be extremely clear at this point,” Frank’s email said. “It is my expectation — and a requirement of state and federal law — that any members of our staff, faculty, or student body at Colorado State University who have reasonable grounds to believe that a crime has been committed will immediately report the suspected crime to law enforcement authorities. The laws also guarantee protections against retaliation to those who bring such issues forward.”

The parade is open to the public at 1400 Remington St. Following the preview in the Griffin Lobby will be hot drinks, dessert and a “Meet the Artist” reception.
