KU Students Challenge Administrators Over Sexual Assault Cases

September 18, 2014

This fall students at KU have been actively organizing on campus to let administrators know that the current guidelines for handling sexual assault cases reported to the University don’t go far enough. Members of SURGE have been active participants in this movement, but the movement itself has reached beyond the core group of student activists who started it and has progressed into a campus wide conversation.  Students started the conversation about the mishandling of sexual assault cases by administrators on social media with the #aGreatPlaceToBeUnsafe and the creation of a video with demands.  In this call to action from students to administrators students are telling prospective jayhawks not to attend KU next fall until these demands are met.  For more information about what is happening at KU follow the University Daily Kansan and be sure to check out the petition at
