In September 2016, in response to the report, university president John J. DeGioia issued a statement apologizing for the academic institution's involvement in slavery and offered to provide admission. "Through great violence, (it) denied and rejected the dignity and humanity of our fellow sisters and brothers. We lay this truth bare - in sorrowful apology and communal reckoning". "Our history has shown us that the vestiges of slavery are a continuum that began with the kidnapping of our people from our motherland to keeping them in bondage with the brutality of American chattel slavery, Jim Crow, segregation ... the school-to-prison pipeline and the over-incarceration of people of color".
The university also hosted a dinner and private vigil for the descendants and took them on a tour of the plantation where their ancestors lived before the sale.
DeGioia and other university officials have met with some descendants of the slaves on various occasions and they have had access to historical materials regarding the sale of their relatives. He had kept ties to the Catholic Church after gaining his freedom, the story said.
The packed liturgy service and building dedications were the latest step by a U.S. Catholic-run university to make amends for ties to slavery and racism. The group, which included faculty, students, alumni and descendants of slaves, had suggested the university offer some form of reparative outreach as well as a meaningful financial commitment.
