The University of Kansas is planning a town hall meeting to discuss race and other matters after recent protests and resignations at the University of Missouri.

University of Missouri System President Tim Wolfe resigned Monday amid pressure from students who said the school responded inadequately to racial problems. The university's Chancellor, R. Bowen Loftin also stepped down Monday.

The University of Kansas says the town hall is set for Wednesday afternoon in the Kansas Union. University of Kansas officials say the goal of the meeting is provide a chance for students, faculty and staff to discuss race, as well as respect and responsibility.
