TORONTO, April 16, 2014 /CNW/ - The Family and Friends of Sasha Menu Courey have issued a response to the independent investigation conducted for the University of Missouri.  University of Missouri System President Tim Wolfe contacted Sasha's parents to offer his deepest sympathy and confirmed that they will be taking action to strengthen the university's policies to ensure students are safe on campus. We are hoping the transformation in their support system will make a difference and become a model for other universities.
