Kansas official says ‘action plan’ coming on student demands

KSAL StaffNovember 17, 2015

A top official at the University of Kansas says it is creating a team to address demands from student protesters and expects to release an “action plan” by mid-January.

Provost Jeffrey Vitter released a statement Tuesday in response to demands made last week by the Rock Chalk Invisible Hawk group. They include increasing faculty diversity, forming a team of counselors for students of color and requiring “inclusion and belonging” training for all students and staff.

Elsewhere, a Wichita State University student protest planned for Wednesday at the Kansas Board of Regents meeting at the university was canceled Tuesday afternoon.

Student body president Joseph Shepard announced on his Facebook page that he had worked out an agreement with President John Bardo after a two-hour meeting.
