Portrait of Katie Eichele

By Katie Eichele, director, The Aurora Center for Advocacy & Education

When sexual violence assaults our lives, The Aurora Center is called on for help. So, when I saw that (now former) Athletic Director Norwood Teague was resigning his position for sexually harassing two employees, I was surprised. Surprise soon turned to disappointment. What a betrayal to our students and the U community. At the same time, I admired the courage it took for the two employees to come forward.
