An audit says University of Iowa officials properly followed internal policies in handling high-profile sexual harassment allegations against an athletics department official.
The report by the university's internal auditor released Wednesday says the university provost's office was made aware of allegations against associate athletic director Peter Gray last September.
The school's sexual misconduct response coordinator was immediately notified as required, and an investigation was launched. Gray was placed on leave October 8th.
An investigative report was issued October 24th concluding Gray violated the university's sexual harassment policy by improperly touching students and athletes. The report came 20 days after a formal complaint was filed, far ahead of a 45-day guideline in UI policy.
The report also found that athletics department officials had received mandatory training on sexual harassment.
