As the three of you know, the Department of Education’s (DOE) preliminary findings in connection with the mass murder at Virginia Tech on April 16, 2007, found the university in violation of the Clergy Act. The school is therefore liable to finds and/or loss of federal funding. The final report was due out in June, 2010. It is now mid-August.

The delay in issuing the final report is both troubling and disturbing.

Another school year is starting. It is of paramount importance that the DOE report be issued soon and that Tech be held accountable. If there is no accountability, there is no incentive to make our universities and colleges safe. Universities and colleges across the country need this report in order to learn.

This a great opportunity for the three of you to put party differences aside and work together to make our campuses safe and secure learning environments.

Would you gentlemen please check and find out the reason for the delay in issuing the DOE report?

Thanking you in advance,

Yours sincerely,

David S. Cariens, Jr.
