IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - The University of Iowa has been sharing information with local law enforcement about students who apply for gun permits.
The Des Moines Register says the information normally is kept confidential in keeping with the federal Family Education Rights and Privacy Act.
Mark Braun is chief of staff for university President Sally Mason, and he says that in some cases information on failing grades may be included or information about depression or anger issues.
A university lawyer says forms signed by gun permit applicants at the Johnson County Sheriff's Office lets the university share that information with the Sheriff's Office.
The U.S. Department of Education says the waiver of the federal rules must specify which records will be disclosed, but the Johnson County form doesn't mention school- or education-related records.
