Some critics said the university’s warnings put too much focus on the victims by warning women not to walk alone or to binge drink — and not enough on perpetrators.”
University officials said the increase resulted from a policy change to start sending warnings about incidents involving acquaintances. The number of sexual offenses reported to campus police dropped in 2013 to four from eight. But the Rape Victim Advocacy Program in Iowa City said there were 117 university-affiliated calls involving sexual assault, stalking or harassment last year.
