Carnegie Mellon President Apologizes for Pope Parody

On Wednesday, Carnegie Mellon University President Jared Cohon apologized for a student's semi-nude parody of the Pope during a spring carnival parade.

“We have procedures for a reason: to protect both the university's interests and those accused of violating our community standards or policies. We will take the time necessary to discharge our responsibility to treat those involved fairly,” wrote Cohon in a campus email.

"...in light of comments I have heard from people on and off campus, I have decided that an update is in order,” he added. “I regret that this occurred and I apologize to all who were offended by this, for religious or other reasons, and especially to those who witnessed this behavior.”
