U. of Iowa student says she was assaulted 1st weekend on campus

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) - A female University of Iowa says she has been the victim of sexual assault.

According to a university crime alert, officials received a report that a student was "the victim of nonconsensual contact of a sexual nature by an acquaintance."

According to the alert, it happened Friday night in a residence hall.

Sexual assault was a highly publicized topic during the 2013-2014 school year. University President Sally Mason came under fire after comments she made about assault which included the phrase "human nature."

Since then, Mason launched a "Six Point Plan to Combat Sexual Assault,"  which can be found here: http://president.uiowa.edu/six-point-plan
