1989 Task Force and the original call for a Rape Center

Credit to Jason Luther for bringing this to our attention…

“I wanted to post some historical documents that help provide a context for the original genesis of the AC. These were printed in the DO on Oct 16, 1989. Importantly, The Chancellor’s Task Force on Rape was created in response to intense student pressure (including a large vigil in Walnut Park the day before) to make the campus safer in light of increases in sexual assault, including a high profile rape case involving an SU football player and a freshman in DellPlain. For more on this see John Robert Greene’s book, Syracuse University: Vol 5, Chapter 13.”
