LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - University of Kansas student leaders who are facing an attempt to oust them have outlined proposals for increasing diversity within student government.

Student Body President Jessie Pringle, Vice President Zach George and Chief of Staff Adam Moon issued a joint statement Monday night outlining 11 proposals.

A student government committee is pushing for their resignations or impeachment, based in part on what members see as an inadequate response to demands to the university from a campus protest group called Rock Chalk Invisible Hawk.

Their proposals include increasing the number of student senators from the current 86 to increase the Senate’s diversity, and creating an election fund to help students who want to run for office. The measures also include raising a student fee to increase diversity programs.
