Lincoln University's President Robert R. Jennings apologized Tuesday after receiving criticism for his remarks on rape and sexual assault.
Video of the statements has drawn outrage.
At the All Women's Convocation held in September, Jennings told students he'd investigated false reports of rape after the accusers were rejected by their sexual partners and advised, "...don't put yourself in a situation that would cause you to be trying to explain something that really needs no explanation."
Jennings encouraged students to report "sexual misconduct" to administrators.
According to the Huffington Post, the Chester County District Attorney, where Lincoln is located, has no reports of false or recanted claims of sexual assault.
