- Duquesne University reached an agreement with the mother of a student who died on campus back in 2018. Danielle Brown had demanded more information from the University about what happened the night that her son, Marquis Jaylen Brown, fell to his death. She went so far as to go on a hunger strike.

Duquesne says Marquis Brown jumped out of a dorm window as police responded to a noise complaint. They say there was no foul play and no police misconduct. As part of the agreement, University Police now have body cameras and enhanced de-escalation training.
