The University of Missouri Board of Curators unanimously ratified changes in rules governing sexual assault and discrimination Thursday.
The changes come from an executive order put forward last week by University of Missouri President Tim Wolfe aimed at toughening university responses to Title IX violations.
Wolfe told the curators he pledged at the beginning of the year to invest in making Missouri campuses safe and secure for students, faculty and staff.
Businessman Timothy Wolfe was announced as the new president of University of Missouri system Tuesday morning. Wolfe is a long time IBM executive and graduated from the University of Missouri School of Business.
