CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - University of Virginia President Teresa Sullivan says the school will make public reviews of how it responds to sexual assault allegations.

The Daily Progress (https://bit.ly/1r2m0Lf ) reports that Sullivan announced the move Wednesday at a Faculty Senate meeting.

Sullivan established an ad hoc group to conduct a review of the school’s policies and practices. She also asked the Charlottesville police to conduct a review.

Another review will be done by an independent counsel.

The reviews follow a Rolling Stone article describing an alleged gang rape at a fraternity house. The magazine has since apologized for what it calls discrepancies in details of the account.

The university also is being reviewed by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights’ Title IX.
