IOWA CITY  — University of Iowa President Sally Mason has given a private briefing to leaders of the school’s governing board as she continues to review the handling of an athletics department official who resigned after being accused of sexual harassment.

An Iowa Board of Regents official confirmed that Mason met Thursday with its leaders to discuss the case of Peter Gray, who resigned last week after an internal investigation accused him of improperly touching student-athletes for years and other inappropriate conduct.

Mason told KGAN-TV in an interview broadcast Wednesday that she would use the meeting to lay out “a really sound strategy for going forward.” She told the station in her first interview on the case that school officials were working quickly to understand the facts and would take appropriate action.
