The University of Kansas is increasing its efforts to help people who are victims of discrimination or harassment.

The university opened a central office to take discrimination or harassment complaints this semester. And it is requiring all students, faculty and staff to take an online sexual harassment training course, both on the Lawrence campus and at the campus in Overland Park.

Before this year, harassment or discrimination reports were directed to the Department of Human Resources or handled by individual academic departments.

Jane McQueeny is director of the new office of Institutional Opportunity and Access.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports the course must be completed by Oct. 5. It helps define sexual harassment and sexual violence, and discusses relationships between students and faculty.
