Bob Jones University Ends Ombuds Program

The private, for-profit, Protestant university has ended its contract for Ombuds services.  In late 2012, BJU had retained an independent non-profit, Godly Response to Abuse in the Christian Environment ("GRACE"), to serve as an Ombudsman for allegations of sexual abuse.  

According to a press release, the university, "grew concerned" about how GRACE was pursuing its objectives.  The two parties are negotiation for the completion of a public report about GRACE's work.  (BJU PR Blog.)
