IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Faculty at the University of Iowa say two high-ranking officials ordered the destruction of records showing dissatisfaction with a school dean.
The Des Moines Register reports Friday that two faculty members allege in a letter that Provost P. Barry Butler and university general counsel Carroll Reasoner ordered documents destroyed that were part of a faculty survey. Some comments expressed dissatisfaction with Margaret Crocco, the dean of the College of Education.
The faculty says Butler and Reasoner asked them to turn over all hard copies of the survey's comments. The pair also says officials told them the university would withdraw legal protection.
Messages left for Butler, Reasoner, Crocco and a human resources official were not immediately returned Friday.
Crocco has been dean of the College of Education since March 2011.
