KU hires new director of office probing discrimination cases

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — The University of Kansas has hired a new director for its office that investigates complaints of discrimination and harassment.

The Kansas City Star reports Michael “Shane” McCreery will begin his new role as head of the office of Institutional Opportunity and Access. He was selected from what school officials called a strong applicant pool and will start his new role on Sept. 1.

The university is facing three lawsuits stemming from claims by two members of the women’s rowing team that they were sexually assaulted by the same former football player.

In addition to suits by each woman, the parents of one of the women also sued the school for falsely advertising its campus is safe.
