Bob Jones working with sexual abuse review group again

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

A few weeks after announcing the school had suspended its work with the ombudsman, Bob Jones University announced it was working again with the independent review group.

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.

Then on Jan. 27, BJU suspended the review. The university said Tuesday that they met with GRACE on Feb. 18 and 19 to discuss any potential issues that may hinder their review.

According to the university, they believe the independent review can be completed.

"To be clear, GRACE and BJU are united in their commitment to a review that is thorough, transparent and objective. As the process moves forward, regular updates will be provided," according to the statement released by the college on Tuesday.

The purpose of the review is to "Assess past responses by the University in support of victims and identify policies and procedures that could be enhanced."
