As a Lasallian Catholic university, Saint Mary’s University is centered on the respect and dignity of each person. We are disturbed by the allegations made against our alumnus John McDonough and other senior leaders in the Blackhawks organization related to mishandling sexual misconduct 11 years ago. We stand with any and all individuals harmed or hurt in anyway related to sexual harassment or assault. We have read the independent investigation and the official statement from the NHL and understand the serious implications of these findings. We believe all sexual assault allegations must be taken seriously and investigated thoroughly and promptly.
