It may seem counterintuitive, but officials at the University of Kansas say they’re pleased they saw an increase in the number of discrimination complaints in 2014.
The office that handles allegations of discrimination received 169 complaints last year. In 2013, that number was 85.
Jane McQueeny, director of the KU Office of Institutional Opportunity and Access, says most of the complaints are under the category of Title IX violations. That's the federal law regulating sexual harassment and violence on campuses.
About a third of the complaint were rape allegations.
