Bob Jones University ends agreement with abuse ombudsman

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Bob Jones University announced this week that it has ended its agreement with the ombudsman appointed to look at how the Greenville campus responds to students with a history of sexual abuse.

The university hired the organization, known as Godly Response to Abuse in the Christian Environment, or GRACE, to evaluate the university's procedures after revelations about sexual abuse on college campuses nationwide in 2011, according to a statement released by the university.

"Over the last several months, we grew concerned about how GRACE was pursuing our objectives, and on Jan. 27, 2014, BJU terminated its contract with GRACE. It is BJU's intention to resolve its differences with GRACE, and we are disappointed a resolution could not be reached before our differences were made public," the university said in a news release on Thursday.

The school has not announced if they plan to replace the organization.

Bob Jones University hired the ombudsman to look into abuse allegations at the Greenville campus in November 2012.
