Norfolk State University Statement Regarding Football Program
By: Norfolk State University
Norfolk State University cares about the safety and wellbeing of every student, faculty, and staff member.
We have a “culture of care” at the institution, and we work diligently to address the needs of our community.
NSU is aware of allegations regarding the conduct of the NSU football program and immediately launched
an investigation when the matter was reported. Subsequently, NSU also acquired the services of an
external consulting firm, Rebecca Leitman Veidlinger, Esq., PLLC. This firm specializes in investigating and
adjudicating allegations of violations of Title IX including harassment, sexual misconduct, and assault.
The firm is currently investigating the allegations. The University is prohibited by federal law from disclosing
any information about any investigations involving students. We acknowledge that this can make it difficult
for members of the public wanting to know more information.
We encourage anyone with any information regarding sexual misconduct, harassment, or any form of
discrimination to please contact the Office of Institutional Equity at 757-278-4121.
