The University of Kansas will create a task force and require training in response to criticism of its handling of sexual assault complaints.
Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little announced Thursday that the task force will review the university’s current policies and practices and recommend improvements.
In a message on her website, Gray-Little said she wants to ensure that students, faculty and staff take training on the subject and not completing the training will lead to sanctions.
The actions come after some university students and activists released a video telling prospective students that the university was not safe.
A panel discussion on sexual assault also will be held next Thursday during Sexual Assault Awareness Week. Gray-Little says she will attend the discussion.
