IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — The University of Iowa has expelled a second student for sexual misconduct as part of a campus crackdown on perpetrators.
UI President Sally Mason said Thursday the student was expelled during the summer term. No other details were immediately released.
The university expelled another student April 1 after he was accused of two assaults, one in a residence hall and one off-campus. That was the first time in recent memory that a student has been expelled for sexual misconduct.
Mason has taken several steps to get tough on offenders, to prevent sexual assaults and provide more support for victims following student-led protests on the issue in the spring.
In a mass email to students Thursday, she outlined new guidelines that will be used to craft punishments for offenders.
