Webster repeals sexual assault course requirement

Webster University will no longer require current undergraduates to participate in the university’s online sexual assault prevention course. The university will instead focus more on the participation of incoming students. Webster, by making it a requirement for all undergraduates, was going beyond the federal mandate making all U.S. colleges provide sexual assault prevention training for students.

Nearly 500 work study awards unused by students

Out of more than 1,000 students awarded federal work-study funds, around 500 of them who are deemed eligible did not use their award this semester. According to the university, some student employees in the program do not even work enough hours to earn their total award. This results in money being left unspent.
