University of Kansas Announces Resignation

Associated Press - October 20, 2015 10:02 am

The University of Missouri-Kansas City and the University of Kansas are joining a national trend toward setting aside areas in residences halls to accommodate students who don't identify with a specific gender.

The University of Kansas has announced the resignation of the director of the office that investigates sexual violence reports on campus.

Jane McQueeny has resigned from her job as director of the university’s Office of Institutional Opportunity and Access. Her last day was Friday.

The office was created in 2012 to investigate reports of sexual violence and other discrimination on campus. The office also recommends disciplinary action when a student is found responsible for sexual misconduct.

The university announced last week that it is creating the new Sexual Assault Prevention and Education Center, which will be devoted to preventing sexual violence on campus. The new center will also be the central coordinating office for the university’s sexual assault prevention and education programming.
