IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — The University of Iowa plans to provide bystander invention training at fraternities and sororities to help combat sexual assaults.

Tom Rocklin is vice president for student life and said that the entire UI Greek community has agreed to take the annual training, which begins in fall. That's about 3,000 students.

Rocklin says the training isn't about stopping a rape in progress, but it is aimed at "getting someone out of a situation that has a lot of risk to it."

The university is developing a similar program for bar workers.
