CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Campus safety is the focus of three town hall meetings at the University of Virginia this week.

The Daily Progress (


 ) reports that each meeting will be hosted by a working group covering one of three topics - prevention, response and culture.

The Prevention Working Group will meet on Monday, followed by the Response Working Group's meeting on Tuesday. The Culture Working Group will meet on Wednesday.

The groups will take their suggestions to the Ad Hoc Group on University Climate and Culture. University President Teresa A. Sullivan appointed the ad hoc group in December following a Rolling Stone article about an alleged fraternity house gang rape. Police have said there's no credible evidence of an assault and other parts of the story have been called into question.
