IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Protesters disrupted the Iowa Board of Regents meeting Wednesday over the regents recent appointment the new University of Iowa president.

This happened during the regents meeting today in Iowa City.

Dozens of students joined protesters, demanding that regents board members resign.

The new group is called 'Iowans Defending our Universities.'

The group says this protest is in reaction to what they believe was a flawed search and ill-advised decision to name Bruce Harreld, the new University of Iowa president.
