Kansas University creates office to prevent sexual violence
LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — The University of Kansas is opening an office that will seek to prevent sexual violence on campus.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/1GeyWFq ) the new KU Sexual Assault Prevention and Education Center will coordinate the university's sexual assault prevention and education programming.
The university announced the new office Wednesday.
The center is expected to cost about $200,000, which includes salaries and benefits for four employees. University spokesman Joe Monaco says the university is not receiving any new funding for the center.
The center will be in addition to the university's Office of Institutional Opportunity and Access, which investigates reports of sexual violence and other discrimination on campus, and recommends disciplinary action.
