Kansas State University asked to examine off-campus rapes


MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Kansas State University fraternities are calling on the university to begin investigations of alleged sexual violence that occurs off campus.

The Manhattan Mercury reports that the university’s Interfraternity Council unanimously approved a resolution Monday seeking the university’s involvement in off-campus incidents. The move comes less than a week after two students sued the university, alleging civil rights violations for not looking into two allegations of rape that occurred at off-campus events hosted by fraternities.

The resolution says the university hasn’t given victims assurance to continue their education free of sexual violence by assisting with finances or helping students change their residence, class schedule or campus job.

University spokesman Jeff Morris says the university will consider the resolution. He says the university is currently working on rewording the language in its policy on investigating sexual assault allegations.
