University of Iowa Athletics Audit to be Discussed in Regents Meeting

  • Photo
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - The Iowa Board of Regents is expected to discuss the results of an audit that examined employment practices at the University of Iowa athletics department.

University President Sally Mason asked for the audit in November after the resignation of associate athletic director Peter Gray, who was accused of sexually harassing athletes and students.

Mason called Gray's case an "avoidable incident," and apologized to those affected. Gray's supervisor, Fred Mims, has been reassigned, and Mason promised other action to improve hiring and management and prevent harassment.

The audit will be presented to regents Wednesday during their meeting in West Des Moines. A summary says its recommendations include improving the department's handling of employee performance reviews.

Board President Craig Lang says the audit is a start and regents will request more information.
