Coleman will give UI update to Iowa City service clubs Jan. 24

University of Iowa President Mary Sue Coleman will give the annual "condition of the university" speech to a joint meeting of Iowa City service clubs at noon, Thursday Jan. 24 at the Radisson Hotel (Highway 1 and I-80).

Coleman's presentation will focus on the both the challenges faced by the UI in 2001, as well as its progress and innovations over the year. Coleman will also address general issues about support for public higher education.

The annual speech by the UI president is a long-standing Iowa City tradition and is designed to strengthen the "town-gown" relationship between the university and the surrounding communities, including Iowa City, Coralville, North Liberty, Clear Creek and Solon.
