We understand how difficult this time must be for you. Universities across the country have been racked by a wave of serious sexual abuse complaints in recent months. High-profile scandals at Michigan State University, Ohio State University and the University of Southern California have raised serious questions about how young student athletes are protected as they move forward toward their dreams of international competition.
A number of recent lawsuits have raised even more damning claims, accusing prominent colleges of hiding or concealing and ignoring sexual abuse reports. Some allegations have even risen as high as team athletics directors. At the same time, a storm of related allegations have engulfed the US Olympic Committee, along with its 47 national governing bodies.
We're all familiar at this point with the shocking saga at Michigan State University, where Larry Nassar, respected gymnastics doctor and now convicted child molester, has been accused of sexually abusing hundreds of young gymnasts. As in many other cases, hundreds of young women have already filed lawsuits against Michigan State University, accusing the school of failing to act on sexual abuse complaints against Nassar.
Michigan State University has barely survived the scandal; the school's president has resigned, as its gymnastics coach faces criminal charges. USA Gymnastics and the US Olympic Committee have also been drawn into the crisis, with allegations of abuse concealment and negligence leveled against high-level officials within each organization.
But in their lawsuits, many survivors have also given voice to a darker truth, claiming that sexual abuse is widespread throughout college athletics. Recent scandals at Ohio State University, where a now-deceased wrestling doctor has been accused of molesting dozens of young men, appear to suggest a similar conclusion. As in the Nassar case, USA Wrestling has been drawn into the allegations. Multiple men say they complained to USA Wrestling, along with officials at Ohio State University, but they say their complaints were ignored or concealed.
As the scandals mount, a pattern emerges, one suggesting that college athletics, along with Olympic-level competition are a poorly-policed breeding ground for dangerous sexual predators, one in which predators gain easy access to thousands of unsuspecting victims.
