Mason comments on Anheuser-Busch agreement

Posted:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

University of Iowa President Sally Mason says in hindsight, she probably wouldn't renew a contract with Anheuser-Busch because of the backlash.

The comment came during a taping on Iowa Public Television's "Iowa Press".

Mason said that she's not sure it's worth the revenue.

Earlier this year, Iowa and Anheuser-Busch made a four-year agreement allowing the beer company to use Iowa's Tiger Hawk logo on posters and other merchandise.

Critics have said the agreement is hypocritical of the university's efforts to curb binge drinking.
