Update on Sweet Briar College Meeting

At the invitation of Attorney General Mark R. Herring, a meeting was held this morning at the Office of the Attorney General  from 9 am - 12 pm  with 25 individuals representing all litigation parties and their counsel. The discussion was facilitated by Mark Rubin, an experienced mediator with the McCammon Group and Executive Director of the Virginia Center for Consensus Building at Virginia Commonwealth University.


Following the discussion, the parties all agreed to the following joint statement:


"Today's meeting was an open and candid exchange of ideas and a productive step in fostering a conversation about the future of an institution that we all care deeply about. We all agree that this conversation should continue in the days and weeks ahead as we seek the best possible resolution to this unfortunate situation. The parties have agreed to share information and to meet again on May 18."


AG Herring himself stepped into the meeting to personally thank all parties for their participation and to encourage them to work collaboratively to do what's best for the Sweet Briar community.
