Keep Roanoke Safe
In March of 2015, a Roanoke College student was raped by a another student. After charges were brought up, he was suspended from the school. Now that the criminal trial is over he is trying to re-enroll as a student. Multiple individuals have stepped forward and said that his behavior towards the victim is NOT incongruent to his personality and past actions. Others have stated that similar actions have been imposed on them at the hands of this student. If he is allowed back, no female student will be able to feel safe. A mahority of the student body will be put at risk. We ask you to sign the petition, stand by your fellow students, and stand by a campus culture of respect and safety. If you are worried about signing and remaining anonymous, we urge you sign with your student ID number which will not give your name to anyone other than the Dean of Students. We plan on submitting this petition to the Dean formally on December 8th and appreciate all of the support we can get before it is submitted as well as continued support after the submission!
