Iowa regents head blasts U. Iowa for ‘breakdowns’
IOWA CITY (AP) — The University of Iowa failed to fully implement a 2008 policy meant to improve responses to sexual misconduct, a problem exposed by its mishandling of an ex-athletics department counselor accused of improperly touching students for years, the leader of its governing board said Wednesday.
Iowa Board of Regents President Craig Lang noted that the regents passed a major overhaul of sexual misconduct policies and procedures in 2008, in response to a high-profile sexual assault case involving two Iowa football players.
But he said it has become clear that the University of Iowa did not fully follow through with a policy requiring employees to be trained to quickly respond to such allegations in light of the case of Peter Gray, who resigned last month after an internal report accused him of sexual harassment.
