Around the industry: State requires sexual assault prevention training for students
Bite-sized college and higher education industry news
- Kentucky: The National Science Foundation has awarded a $200,000 grant to Somerset Community College to expand the reach of its 3D printing program. The grant is geared toward advancing biomedical applications for 3D printing in the region. The college has developed a certificate program for 3D printing, and its first graduates will earn their certificates at the end of the fall semester (Miller, WKU, 7/31).
- Minnesota: Minnesota college students will be required to complete sexual assault prevention training within their first 10 days of school beginning this fall. Under a new law that took effect Monday, state campuses will have to make public how many sexual assault complaints they investigate each year, as well as how many complaints result in disciplinary action. In addition, colleges must provide online options to anonymously report sexual assault (Lerner, Minneapolis Star Tribune, 7/31).
- South Carolina: Voorhees College announced last month that it has selected Franklin Evans to become its ninth president. Evans was previously the interim president of South Carolina State University, where he also served as provost and chief academic officer.
