U. Iowa president to lead forum on sexual assault

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — University of Iowa President Sally Mason is leading a forum to discuss recent concerns about sexual assaults this school year.

Thursday's meeting at the Iowa Memorial Union comes as a new group demands more university actions to address the problem.

The protest group formed after Mason told the student newspaper last week that preventing all sexual assaults wasn't realistic "just given human nature."

Mason has apologized for any harm her words caused and pledged to use her power "to end this terrible crime on our campus."

The protesters want changes to the way reports of sexual assault are communicated to campus. The university has issued nine such notifications from UI Police this school year, an increase that officials attribute to more victims stepping forward and better information sharing with police.
