UVa. hosts event on campus violence

By Washington Post editors

Students, faculty and staff at the University of Virginia are being encouraged to address issues of campus safety and violence prevention.

The Charlottesville school is holding a Friday event called “Day of Dialogue: Toward a Caring Community.”

It features a series of discussions, a resource fair and a public art project that has veiled the columns of the university’s historic Rotunda with black cloth.

The daylong discussion comes about five months after the slaying of lacrosse player Yeardley Love. The 22-year-old was found dead in her off-campus apartment in May. Her ex-boyfriend and fellow lacrosse player, George Huguely, is charged with murder.

President Teresa Sullivan told attendees that the event is the first step in building a stronger, more caring community.

What's new with Huguley's case? One of the things that is needed to address this type of violence is swift, certain and harsh punishment of abusers and murders!
