Statement from Larry Moneta on Status of Indicted Students

Two Duke University students have been indicted by a grand jury investigating allegations of sexual assault against a Durham woman.

The university is prohibited under federal privacy regulations from releasing information regarding student disciplinary matters. (For more information about the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act -- FERPA -- see http://www.ed.gov/policy/gen/guid/fpco/ferpa/index.html.)

Historically, it has been the university's practice to issue an interim suspension when a student is charged with a felony or when the student's presence on the campus may create an unsafe situation.
