President Coleman schedules "fireside chat" for April 6
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- The series of "fireside chats" with University
of Iowa President Mary Sue Coleman will continue Monday, April 6 from 7-9
p.m. in the Triangle Ballroom at the Iowa Memorial Union. The chats are
designed to provide students with an opportunity to communicate their concerns
and ideas directly to the UI president and her cabinet.
All interested students may attend the chat. However, invitations are
being sent to 500 students chosen at random from the list of current students
on record in the Office of the Registrar. The same process will be followed
for issuing invitations to a fireside chat to be held in May.
This is the second year President Coleman has held the informal discussions
with students. Like last year, she will be accompanied by a vice president
at each of the chats. Phillip Jones, vice president for student services,
will participate in the April 6 event.
The chats are being co-sponsored by the UI Student Government and the
Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University
of Iowa-sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires
an accommodation to participate in this program, please contact University
Relations at 335-0557.
