Ex-Player Had ‘Non-Consensual Sex’ With Student

Faculty and staff at the University of Kansas reported declining morale because of concerns about salary, lack of support, increased workload and the state government's increasing role in running the university, according to a "climate" survey taken on the Lawrence and Edwards campuses last fall.
The University of Kansas concluded that a former football player had “non-consensual sex” with one female student and violated the school’s sexual harassment policy with another student who also alleges she was sexually assaulted.
The Kansas City Star obtained letters signed by the university’s vice provost of student affairs that say a university investigation recommended that the ex-player, Jordan Goldenberg, be permanently expelled.
Goldenberg has not been criminally charged. Attorneys for Goldenberg say he denies the sex-assault allegations and withdrew from the university in lieu of expulsion.
A phone number listed for his family’s home in Missouri has been disconnected.
The women have sued the university and spoken publicly, alleging they were sexually assaulted in a residence hall by the same then-football player. The lawsuits don’t name Goldenberg.
