It is not often I’m at a loss for words, but during the last month or so, I frequently was unable to speak or write. Often, all of my words were replaced with tears. Tears first and foremost for all of the courageous and determined young women who spoke about the horrific abuses they endured. My tears were mixed with awe at their bravery and my deepest hope for their healing. I cried for their parents and their families. And then I cried for the survivors again – over and over as each one rose to speak. Words escaped me, tears did not. Later, I also cried for my university. For all of the incredible students, researchers, staff, faculty and alumni who some are painting with the same brush of the ugliest color. This horrible thing is not who we are. A monster does not define us. It has shocked us and shaken us to our core. From the scientist in his lab looking for cures and the student studying for an exam, to the researcher figuring out how to feed the world and alumni around the world, every Spartan is reeling. And yes, there have been many tears.View story photos

Rachel Croson: What we do
