SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Gonzaga University in Spokane will create a commission to identify what actions the Jesuit school might take in light of the sexual abuse crisis in the Catholic Church.

Gonzaga President Thayne McCulloh announced the commission on Monday.

The Spokesman-Review says McCulloh is seeking application letters from those who want to join the commission.

He says the commission will meet through the summer and fall, and make recommendations to him by the end of the fall semester.

Gonzaga faced scrutiny in December after a news story called attention to Cardinal Bea House, a Jesuit-owned building on campus where priests were sent to retire after credible allegations of sexual abuse.

The last of those priests was moved to a Jesuit compound in Los Gatos, California, in 2016.
