Regents groups study Title IX, increasing college degrees

The Kansas Board of Regents has approved a working group to study how the state’s universities respond to sexual violence and other sex-based discrimination issues. A separate group will study how to find and enroll Kansans with some college credits but no degree.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports ( the regents approved both groups during meetings this week.

The first group will involve university Title IX coordinators working together to determine the best practices for investigating and resolving cases of sexual harassment and sex-based discrimination on college campuses.

The second group will explore organizing a statewide initiative to persuade Kansans with some college but no diploma to return to higher education to complete a certificate or degree.
