A sexual assault was reported Tuesday, marking the ninth of the University of Iowa’s academic year.

UI staff received a report form a student that she was sexually assaulted on March 2 by an acquaintance in a campus residence hall. This marks the seventh report on campus and the third in a residence hall. One attempted sexual assault was reported this fall just before classes began.

The university released the information to students in its first revised trigger warning. The alternations on the new language in the timely notices followed protests from UI students and suggestions from a listening post held by UI President Sally Mason.

The new warning included a link to a message from the dean of students regarding consent as opposed to the list of general policies for students.  It did not include whether the student intended to report the assault to law enforcement.

Additionally, the university removed the risk factors and circumstances associated with sexual assault.
