HARASSMENT ALLEGATIONS: Iowa To Change Advisor Policies
Recent sexual harassment allegations against a former student advisor are prompting the University of Iowa to revise some of its policies.
Peter Gray resigned from his position as Associate Director of Athletics Student Services last week, following a complaint that he sexually harassed students and traded football tickets and money for nude photos.
An internal investigation into the allegations is underway.
University President Sally Mason says the school is making changes in student-athlete advising including; reviewing the hiring process, launching an internal audit, and requiring additional harassment training.
Mason also offered an apology to the students who say they were sexually harassed by Gray.
Saying, “Our ultimate role as a university is to protect our students, faculty, and staff. The University of Iowa owes an apology to everyone affected by this avoidable incident. We cannot afford to allow even an isolated breakdown in our system to compromise that fundamental commitment.”
