Katherine Redmond, founder of the National Coalition Against Violent Athletes, wrote a column for Huffington Post titled, "An Alarming Trend at University of Montana." After mentioning the Penn State scandal, she writes how UM "has run amok" in its handling (or non-handling) of recent sexual assault allegations. Toward the end, there's this:
The lack of institutional control of this university is alarming and, when it occurred at Penn State University, on the east coast, with a legendary coach and program in play, it shocked us all to ask, "How did this happen?" It's happening in Missoula, Montana, and no one outside of this isolated college town knows any better.
UM is hosting a public meeting about the ongoing investigation into the sexual assault allegations tonight, at 5:30, at the Holiday Inn Downtown.
