Lester said the task force will do a thorough review:

“As I said when we formed the task force, we have an absolute responsibility to review our policies in the aftermath of Penn State. This is a very serious matter, and I applaud President Hargis for calling on the task force to include it in our review. We will do so in a constructive manner, ever mindful of the sensitivities and concerns of victims; but, it is also our obligation to expeditiously protect our students and community from those who are found to threaten our society with sexual misconduct.”
