Officials at university donate to domestic violence programs

In many ways, a university located in a city or town is more than an institution for learning. It often plays a broader role of helping to educate the greater community about important social issues such as the problems posed by domestic violence. There are many such universities throughout California that help support community outreach programs within their geographic locations.

In Dec. 2016, a woman approached a staff member of a college football team to report abuse by one of the team's coaching staff. That individual purportedly relayed the allegations of domestic abuse to the head coach who then spoke to the athletic director. Unfortunately, the officials did not take any actions and permitted the coach to continue to call defensive plays for the upcoming game. Coach Tumpkin was then suspended. The woman reported her allegations to police who then arrested him after an investigation.

The university conducted an outside investigation into how these athletic officials handled the allegations. It was determined that the allegations were mishandled, and the officials were subject to disciplinary actions. The head coach and the athletic director were both ordered to make monetary donations to organizations that support victims of domestic abuse. Both men made four donations of $50,000 each to four organizations and agencies.

Officials with Colorado University have stated that they will continue to support those who work with victims, while also working to educate staff, students and faculty about this serious social issue. California residents who have been victims of domestic violence or have faced these serious allegations may be uncertain how to either protect themselves and their loved ones or how to effectively defend against these types of accusations. Individuals in these circumstances may be best served by seeking the advice of an experienced and compassionate family law attorney.
