Statement on violent protest at University of Iowa

Spring 2017 Aerials; Pentacrest

We join others in the community to condemn any form of sexual violence. While we support freedoms of speech and assembly, the violence and destruction by some members of the crowd during a protest last night at the University of Iowa is unacceptable and cannot be repeated.

We call on all members of the campus community to come together to address the issue of sexual violence in a meaningful manner. We support survivors and believe those found responsible for misconduct should be held accountable for their actions.
