(KPLR) – The University of Missouri is boosting its effort to fight sexual assault. The school plans to hire a full-time title nine coordinator and a full-time investigator.

It was previously handled on a part-time basis by an administrator with other duties.

The chancellor vowed to make the school “accountable and responsible” after the school received a bad review for its response to the suicide of a former swimmer Sasha Menu-Courey.

Before her death she told health professionals she had been raped by several football players.
