President Defends Rutgers Response to Tyler Clementi

President Defends Rutgers Response to Tyler Clementi
October 11, 2010

Richard McCormick, president of Rutgers University, said last week that he reviewed the records of the university's response to Tyler Clementi and that the university handled the situation appropriately, The Star-Ledger reported. Clementi apparently killed himself after learning that his roommate had broadcast video of Clementi's sexual encounter with a man. After the suicide, reports surfaced that Clementi had complained to residence life officials about the situation, and those reports have led to demands that Rutgers release all records about those complaints. McCormick declined to do so, citing privacy concerns. But he said that he had personally reviewed available information, adding that "I have studied the record carefully and I can’t say very much about it.... But I believe Rutgers responded appropriately to the information that we had."
