UCA Board to address sexual misconduct policy in meeting

The University of Central Arkansas Board of Trustees will consider a number of policy revisions during its meeting Friday morning at Wingo Hall.

The board, which will meet at 10 a.m., will be looking at revisions concerning student residency regulations, diversity, capital projects, instructional fees and scholarship guidelines. In addition, the board will address its policy on sexual harassment and other forms of harassment.

“There have been recent changes to various pieces of the regulatory framework that guides institutions on matters related to sexual misconduct,” the agenda states. “Developments over the past three years have triggered substantial review and revision of the systematic approaches we utilize to protect students, faculty, staff, and campus visitors from sexual misconduct and to provide victims with appropriate support.”

The Board will also hear a financial update and reports on the Donaghey Project and the Lewis Science Center.
