BJU, GRACE to continue review of university's response to sexual and other abuse

Published on Tuesday, February 25, 2014

Bob Jones University announced Tuesday that it has reached agreement with GRACE to complete the independent review of the university's response to sexual and other abuse. GRACE, Godly Response to Abuse in the Christian Environment, is based in Lynchburg, Va.

The independent review was initiated by BJU in Nov. 2012, in response to a series of national news stories about abuse at other institutions. The purpose of the review was to assess past responses by BJU in support of victims and identify policies and procedures that could be enhanced.

BJU suspended the review on Jan. 27. The university met with GRACE on Feb. 18-19 to discuss any issues that might stand in the way of GRACE's completion of thorough, transparent and objective review. GRACE satisfactorily addressed the university's concerns.
