President Coleman hosts 'fireside chat' Monday, May 1

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- University of Iowa President Mary Sue Coleman will host the final "fireside chat" of the academic year Monday, May 1 from 7 to 9 p.m. in the North Room in the Iowa Memorial Union.

Coleman established this informal discussion series three years ago to provide students with an opportunity to communicate their concerns and ideas directly to her and her cabinet. Phillip Jones, vice president and dean of students, will attend the May 1 event.

Invitations have been sent to 500 students chosen at random from the registrar's list of current students. Any interested student is welcome to attend.

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 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.
