LAWRENCE, Kan. - A University of Kansas survey shows that one in 10 students has been a victim of sexual harassment, including sexual assault. The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/1kvTMp3 ) a University of Kansas official says about 30 reported incidents over a two-year span involved men raping or sexually assaulting woman who were drunk. Kansas University created the Office of Institutional Opportunity and Access about two and a half years ago. It investigates sexual assaults reported to the university. The office's executive director Jane McQueeny says the university investigates all sexual assault complaints. McQueeny says the college also conducts confidential surveys and provides many ways to report sexual assault claims. According to a 2012 CDC report, nearly 20 percent of undergraduate female students have been victims of sexual assault or attempted sexual assault.
