The president of the University of Notre Dame sent an e-mail to students, faculty, staff and alumni Friday saying that the school is responsible for a student videographer’s death because it failed to protect him.
“Declan Sullivan was entrusted to our care, and we failed to keep him safe,” the Rev. John Jenkins wrote. “We at Notre Dame and ultimately I, as president are responsible. Words cannot express our sorrow to the Sullivan family and to all involved.”
