KU Leader Notes Efforts to Reduce Sexual Violence

KSAL StaffOctober 16, 2014

University of Kansas Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little says the university is working to improve its handling of sexual violence on the Lawrence campus.

Gray-Little briefed the Kansas Board of Regents Wednesday on steps the school has taken to address the issue. Kansas, Kansas State University and Washburn University are among 85 universities nationwide being investigated for their handling of sexual assault complaints.

The chancellor says the school established a task force to recommend improvements for handling the complaints. And Kansas is now enforcing a requirement that students complete a training program in sexual assault and harassment before they can register for classes.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports the provost’s office also is temporarily funding a full-time position for someone to counsel victims, witnesses and others affected by sexual assault.
