BOSTON (WHDH) - The president of Berklee College of Music is responding to concerned students who want to see the school make changes to prevent sexual assaults on campus.
Students staged a walk out Monday in protest of how sexual misconduct is handled at the school.
President Roger Brown met with some students and said the school will create a group focused on eliminating assaults and harassment.
In a statement, the president wrote in part:
I admire your courage in coming forward and am grateful for your activism. I unequivocally condemn abusive or harassing behavior at Berklee.
This comes after a recent Boston Globe investigation found that Berklee left several professors leave quietly after facing sexual assault allegations. The investigation found at least one of the professors was also hired elsewhere.
