Thirty-seven registered criminal offenders are enrolled or employed at the six state universities in Kansas.
The Wichita Eagle reports that federal law requires universities to keep a list of the registered offenders at their school and make the information available. But it’s not clear how many people know about the lists.
There are 12 offenders at Wichita State University, 10 at Kansas State University, seven at Pittsburg State University, five at the University of Kansas, two at Emporia State University and one at Fort Hays State.
Their crimes include rape, indecent liberties with a child and use of a deadly weapon.
Reports of sex crimes at the University of Virginia have fueled a national discussion about campus safety.
