Texas AG Ken Paxton surrenders after felony indictment >

OLLU statements

President Sister Jane Ann Slater, CDP, PhD:

“As we and law enforcement continue to investigate illegal recordings that have been posted on the web, I want to share the actions I am taking.

“First, I want to say there are words and expressions in these recordings that are unacceptable, that do not reflect our Core Values, and that are not befitting of our heritage as a Catholic university founded by the Sisters of Divine Providence. I am dealing with this directly. As you know personnel matters are private and I am not allowed to discuss how we are addressing the situation in detail.

“Second, I want to address the illegal nature of these recordings. Recording these private conversations is a violation of Texas law and OLLU policy. University, local and federal law enforcement are conducting a thorough investigation and will pursue it to the fullest measure, including prosecution for criminal activity.

“Finally, when I took the position of president, I said I was going to build communion within our university. I am going to use this challenge as an opportunity to strengthen our community through dialogue on words, their varied meanings and their power to hurt and heal.”

Robert Bisking, PhD:

“As executive vice president, I expect people to live up to our Core Values and take responsibility for their words and actions. I am accountable for my words and actions. My choice of words was unprofessional and inappropriate. I am deeply sorry for the hurt they have caused this institution that I love. I have asked the campus community for forgiveness.”
