Excessive alcohol consumption is the “fuel” for sexual assault, according to University of Virginia Board of Visitors member L.D. Britt.
The university’s board of directors met Tuesday to formulate a response to the firestorm created by last week’s Rolling Stone article detailing the disturbing sexual assault of a woman at a fraternity house and the “culture of rape” plaguing the school. In response to the story, the school suspended activities at all fraternities and sororities, where officials acknowledge much of the drinking on campus takes place.
