Announcement from the YU Board of Trustees

August 26, 2013

Dear Members of the Yeshiva University Community,

Last December, in response to reports of past abuse at Yeshiva University High School for Boys, the Yeshiva University Board of Trustees retained the law firm of Sullivan & Cromwell LLP to conduct a full and independent investigation of the allegations as well as to review current policies and procedures. Sullivan & Cromwell, in turn, engaged T&M Protection Resources to provide specialized knowledge and expertise with respect to allegations of abuse and abuse prevention.

The Board has been advised that Sullivan & Cromwell’s investigation is now complete. The report of the investigation, which we encourage you to read, will be issued at 9:30 a.m. this morning to both the public and the Board of Trustees at the same time:

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Sullivan & Cromwell and T&M for all of their work. More importantly, we would like to thank the many individuals who, despite the personal and emotional sacrifice associated with doing so, made themselves available for interviews and who otherwise assisted in the investigation.

Board of Trustees
Yeshiva University
