FSU responds to documentary on sexual assault

Dear Friends,

I want you to know that we are aware of tonight’s screening in Tallahassee of the documentary film “The Hunting Ground.”

We were invited to attend this screening and to participate in a panel discussion but declined due to the lawsuit Erica Kinsman has filed in federal court against Florida State University. In light of that pending litigation, any university representative would be unable to fully and freely discuss the contents of the documentary, especially as they relate to Ms. Kinsman.

Our position about this film, which I shared in my previous message below, has not changed. Florida State University does not tolerate sexual assault and is committed to making our campus the safest it can be for all of our students.
