Reporters and photographers are invited to attend an announcement by the University of Iowa concerning the UI College of Engineering building modernization project at 1 p.m., Friday, Oct. 31 in the Faculty/Staff Room, south end of the Triangle Ballroom, Third Floor, Iowa Memorial Union.

Scheduled to speak are: UI President Mary Sue Coleman; UI Foundation President Darrell D. Wyrick; Engineering Dean Richard K. Miller; and honored guests.

The fund-raising campaign for this project is helping to finance a four-year, $26 million modernization of the 90-year-old Engineering Building, with $14 million coming from state appropriations, $4 million from the UI, and at least $8 million from alumni, friends and corporations. A ground-breaking ceremony was held in May, with completion scheduled for 2001.
