Stephan Moccio issued the following apology regarding remarks made during the Monday morning session of Convocation.
* * *
Today during my convocation address I made inappropriate comments that I sincerely and deeply regret.
I apologize without hesitation to the entire Western community, graduates, family and friends in attendance today.
I realize the words chosen were not only wrong, but undermine decades of work on this very campus to bring justice to important women’s issues.
I will strive to better represent the values of my beloved alma mater in the future.
