No changes in Greek recruitment, housing at KU

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — The University of Kansas will not follow recommendations from a task force on sexual assault that it change how freshmen are recruited and housed at fraternities and sororities.

The university announced Monday it has, or soon will, implement 22 of 27 suggestions from the Chancellor’s Task Force on Sexual Assault.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports the two most controversial recommendations suggested all Kansas freshmen live in residence halls, and that fraternities and sororities shouldn’t begin recruiting until the spring semester.

The university said it doesn’t have enough housing for all incoming freshmen. And it said fraternities and sororities have discussed delaying recruitment but have chosen not to change their traditions.

The task force was created in 2014 and met throughout the academic year to form the recommendations.
