U of M head: Sexual misconduct training not getting through (Yahoo Sports)

University of Minnesota President Eric Kaler says his school needs to do a better job of training its student-athletes on sexual assault and harassment issues because something isn't getting through. In an interview published Saturday in the St. Paul Pioneer Press (http://bit.ly/2jkbVdq ) in the wake of the football team's sexual assault scandal, Kaler said student-athletes are already getting strong guidance on dealing with those issues. ''I think clearly we need to do both more and different (training), because our student-athletes get an exceptional amount of training around sexual assault and harassment issues, and yet we didn't seem to make the point,'' Kaler said.
