Officials are continuing to review the University of Iowa Presidential Committee on Athletics, but they haven’t reached any decisions yet.

UI Faculty Senate President Ed Dove, one of five members of a group chosen to review the committee, updated the Faculty Council on Tuesday.

Dove said the group meets and reports to UI President Sally Mason whenever needed on a periodic basis.

After the meeting, he said the reviews have nothing to do with communication struggles in relation to the Hawkeye football team members’ hospitilizations earlier this year. Rather, the reviews are required by university guidelines.

“[The reviews] are totally independent of that event,” he said.

Dove said the group has not yet decided on what to present to Mason later this academic year.

Staff Council President Amber Seaton, and members of the UI Student Government, Executive Council for Graduate and Professional Students, and the Graduate Student Senate are on the committee with Dove.
