Fireside chat with President Coleman to be Aug. 30
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 first chat of the 1999-2000 academic year will
be Monday, Aug. 30 at 7 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 fourth year Coleman has held the informal
discussions with students. As in past years, a senior member of her administration
will participate in each of the chats. Provost Jon Whitmore will attend the
Aug. 30 event. Fireside chats will also be held on:
Oct. 4, 1999
Nov. 15, 1999
Feb. 7, 2000
March 27, 2000
May 1, 2000
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.
