Another chat with President Coleman to be held April
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- University of Iowa President Mary
Sue Coleman is continuing her tradition of holding "fireside chats" to provide
students with an opportunity to communicate their concerns and ideas directly
to her and her cabinet. The next chat will be held Monday, April 12 from 7
to 9 p.m. in the North Room of the Iowa Memorial Union.
All interested students may attend, but invitations
are being sent to 500 students chosen at random from the Registrar's list
of current students. The same process will be followed for issuing invitations
to fireside chats to be held throughout the academic year.
This is the third year President Coleman has held
the informal discussions with students. As in past years, a senior member
of her administration will also participate in each of the chats. Vice President
Ann Rhodes will attend the April 12 event.
The chats are co-sponsored by the UI Student Government
and the President's Office.
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.
