LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — A task force at the University of Kansas is recommending changes in how the school handles sexual assaults and rape on campus.  The suggested changes include requiring all freshmen, including fraternity members, to live in residence halls. Other suggestions: creating an on-campus center for sexual assault prevention and education and clarifying that the university can discipline students for sexual violence that occurs off campus if the victim is also a student.  The Lawrence Journal-World reports the task force report, which was released Friday, includes 27 recommendations.  Alesha Doan, associate professor of political science, and co-chairwoman of the task force, says the recommendations focus on prevention of sexual assaults. She says establishing the center for prevention and education is "by far" the most important recommendation.
