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.
LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) – The University of Kansas has created a task force on diversity efforts.
Incoming interim provost Sara Rosen announced the new Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Advisory Group on Tuesday.
Sheahon Zenger, the university’s director of athletics, and Clarence Lang, chairman of the African and African-American Studies department, will co-chair the task force.
The group’s focus will include making recommendations for campus diversity training, incorporating diversity into curriculum and developing a campus strategic plan on diversity, equity and inclusion.
Rosen says additional appointments to the group will be announced later.
