Disrespectful behavior and bullying were among the top new concerns listed in an annual report from the University of Iowa's ombuds office. The report by University Ombudsperson Cynthia Joyce and Ombudsperson Craig Porter indicates the office received 280 visitors last year, a 9 percent increase from the year before. Of those, 30 percent were students, 47 percent were staff and 21 percent were faculty. For staff, job conflicts were a primary concern and academic concerns were a top issue for undergraduates.
