LAWRENCE, Kansas (AP) – The University of Kansas is receiving more sexual assault reports from students after the school’s handling of an alleged on-campus rape set off protests.

The Kansas City Star reports that the recent complaints include two reports of stalking, seven of sexual harassment, one of sexual assault, one of date violence, one of domestic violence and seven so recent the office had not yet categorized them.

The reports began rolling in after a student who said she was raped in 2013 complained of her attacker’s lenient punishment. The university has declined to comment on the case. Other women have come forward to say the school didn’t take sexual violence seriously.

The university is among 76 schools being investigated by the federal government for their handling of sexual assault cases.
