Push for sexual assault notation on transcripts dropped

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — A proposal that would require all state universities to add a notation on a student’s transcript if the student is expelled for sexual violence has been dropped.

The Lawrence Journal-World members of a Kansas Board of Regents’ Governance Committee discussed the issue last month. Minutes from the meeting show that the committee decided not to pursue the policy. That meant the proposal never reached the full Board of Regents for a vote.

The minutes say that “currently no one is specifically interested in an across the board policy and believe that non-academic misconduct should be handled on a case-by-case basis.”

Students at several state schools initiated the transcript discussion. Last year, a council made up of leaders of the six state universities agreed they wanted a statewide requirement.
