UW Issues Statement Following Sentencing of Former Student-Athlete

The University of Wyoming has issued the following statement regarding the case of former UW student-athlete Carl Granderson in Albany County District Court:

“The university has great sympathy and support for the victims in this case, and I want to state unequivocally that UW does not tolerate bullying and harassment of students who report sexual misconduct,” Acting President Neil Theobald says.

A previous statement from the university noted that Granderson graduated from the university prior to the charges being filed.

“Everyone at the University of Wyoming recognizes the importance of sexual assault prevention and enforcement,” Theobald says. “We are dedicating significant additional resources, including four new staff positions in our NO MORE campaign, to prevent and respond to sexual assaults. One of those new positions will be housed in the Department of Athletics.”

More information about sexual assault reporting is available at www.uwyo.edu/reportit, including links to policies and procedures, available resources and an online reporting form.
