Official Statement in Response to Media Announced Law Suit

Posted by Deborah.Walker on Monday October 5, 2015

Since 1882, Nyack College has maintained a strong commitment to protecting the well-being of its students and creating a healthy learning environment.

On Friday, October 2, 2015 the New York Post provided Nyack College with a copy of a lawsuit purportedly filed against the College on behalf of one current softball player. The College has not been served with the lawsuit.

It is Nyack College’s policy not to comment on pending litigation particularly with respect to current students who have chosen to continue their academic and athletic careers at Nyack College.

From the time Nyack learned of these allegations and immediately terminated the coach, college personnel have fully cooperated with law enforcement authorities. All faculty and staff hired by the College are subjected to a rigorous background check including a check of sex offender databases.

We continue to keep those impacted in our prayers and ask that the privacy of these student athletes be respected.

Any additional questions can be addressed to:

Walter Sevastian, Esq.

3 Main Street, Suite 1

Nyack, NY 10960
