The University of Kansas received nearly twice as many sexual assault complaints last year than in 2013.
The school's Office of Institutional Opportunity and Access says it received 169 complaints last year, compared with 85 in 2013.
The office's Executive Director Jane McQueeny says 120 of the 169 complaints were filed under Title 9; title 9 requires campuses to provide an education environment that is free from sexual harassment, sexual assault, and domestic violence.
School officials attribute the increase to improved awareness of sexual assault.
The Kansas Bureau of Investigation is trying to find out if Kansas has a backlog of untested sexual assault kits.
Officials say that across the country, hundreds of thousands of the kits remain untested.
The KBI recently sent surveys to all Kansas law enforcement agencies to identify if there is a testing backlog for the kits, which include swabs and specimens gathered during exams of sexual assault victims.
The group's director, Kirk Thompson, says the KBI doesn't think there is one, but wants to make sure.
University of Kansas students are pressuring the school to improve its response to sexual assault reports.
More than 200 people attended a forum on the subject yesterday, hours after a student group called September Siblings posted a video telling people that the school is not safe.
The group's effort is in response to recent reports from a university student who said she was raped in 2013 and that her assailant was given a lenient punishment. University officials have declined to comment on the case, which Douglas County District Attorney Charles Bronson is reviewing.
