New superintendent says Naval Academy must address infrastructure, sea level rise, sexual assault challenges
from The Capital
After relieving Vice Adm. Walter E. "Ted" Carter, the Naval Academy's new superintendent said he sees infrastructure and sexual assault as two challenges facing the institution. "Naval Academy infrastructure must improve to meet modern technological demands and rising Severn tides," Vice Adm. Sean Buck said during a change of command ceremony in Annapolis. "The prevention and elimination of sexual assault and sexual harassment remains at the forefront of my mind." In the 2017-2018 school year, there were 32 reports of sexual assault, the highest number in more than a decade. And in 2018, the Navy said it would raise a sea wall by 2.62 feet to prevent damage to the academy's grounds from sea level rise.
