Students, alumni and faculty peacefully gathered Saturday evening to speak on sexual misconduct on campus.

Nearly 50 students, faculty and alumni gathered along Keck Drive Saturday evening, sharing stories and speaking out about issues of sexual misconduct at campus.

The same day, longtime Linfield benefactor and Board of Trustees member Ronni Lacroute resigned from her position on the board. Lacroute, who has donated over $4 million to the university in two decades, has committed to continue supporting the school financially, but said in an interview with The Oregonian that she “cannot accept the administration’s claims that there are no problems anymore related to sexual misconduct or student safety on campus.”
