First year student shares her concerns about the Butler administration in reference to the recent resignation of Victim Advocate Sara Minor.
Sara Minor, the victim advocate at Butler University, is voluntarily resigning from the university effective on May 8. This resignation was confirmed by a university spokesperson.
The Butler Community received messages about increased programming for sexual assault awareness month and an outline of a plan to improve the university’s approach surrounding sexual assault. However, the university’s victim advocate and students are skeptical that increased programming will help survivors or change campus culture.
The Jan. 29 Indy Star article about a mishandled Butler student sexual assault case sparked conversation about how the University is educating and informing students through prevention programs.
