Purdue University officials are declining comment about the school’s pending investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct at an on-campus summer camp.

The school sent out a press release Friday saying the university’s vice president for ethics and compliance, Alysa Rollock, would lead the inquiry.

But staff at Rollock’s office said she was unavailable for an interview Friday and a Purdue spokesperson said the school preferred to let the press release stand as the University’s only comment on the matter.

Purdue officials respond to Penn State sanctions

Jul 23, 2012

Purdue continues to remind its employees about their responsibility to report child abuse.

Acting President Tim Sands says that can be done by calling 911 in an emergency situation, or in a non-emergency, alerting a senior staff member and police or Child Protective Services.

Sands and other administrators held a news conference Monday, following the announced sanctions against Penn State for the child sexual abuse scandal there.

Sands says they’re using the report on the situation as a way to improve their procedures and planning.
