     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The Education Department says Minot State University is among 55 colleges and universities currently facing a Title IX investigation over their handling of sexual abuse complaints.
 
     Title IX prohibits gender discrimination at schools that receive federal funds. It is the same law that guarantees girls equal access to sports, but it also regulates institutions' handling of sexual violence and increasingly is being used by victims who say their schools failed to protect them.
 
     North Dakota University System Interim Chancellor Larry Skogen and Minot State President David Fuller did not immediately return telephone calls Thursday seeking comment.
 
     The federal agency says a school's appearance on the list does not mean that it has violated the law, but that an investigation is ongoing.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Highway Patrol says a woman walking along a highway was struck and killed by a semitrailer near Alexander, in western North Dakota.
 
     Troopers say 67-year-old Linda Southerland of Foster, Oregon, was standing in the southbound lane of U.S. Highway 85 when she was struck by the truck at about 1:10 a.m. this morning.  The driver of the semi told troopers that he attempted to swerve to avoid hitting the woman.  The patrol says Southerland's body has been sent to Bismarck for autopsy.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The Burleigh County Sheriff's Department is warning of a phone scam involving a man falsely claiming to be a deputy and threatening people to send him a money order to avoid arrest.  

    Consumer Protection Director Parrell Grossman tells KXMB-TV that people need to be cautious when answering the phone from an unrecognizable number.  Grossman says law enforcement would never call and threaten arrest if a fine is not paid.  He says telephone scammers are difficult to catch because they may be calling from another state or using someone else's number

     OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A monthly economic index for nine Midwestern and Plains states hit a three-year high in April, suggesting more economic growth over the next three to six months.  A report issued today says the overall Mid-America Business Conditions Index rose to 60.4 from 58.2 in March.  Looking six months ahead, the business confidence portion of the overall index jumped to 64.2 in April from 59.0 in March.
 
     The survey results from supply managers are compiled into a collection of indexes ranging from zero to 100. Survey organizers say any score above 50 suggests growth, while a score below that suggests decline.  The survey covers Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma and South Dakota.

     GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - The University of North Dakota has passed its once-in-a-decade review of its academic programs.  School officials say the North Central Association's Higher Learning Commission has granted continued accreditation to UND after an examination that began in 2010.
 
     The Higher Learning Commission reviews individual institutions about every 10 years. UND has been continuously accredited by the association since it organized in 1913.  Only accredited schools receive federal financial aid.
 
     UND President Robert Kelley says faculty, staff, students and community members embraced the three-year self-study process and it has made the school a stronger institution.
