NEWS RELEASE FROM THE BOARD OF REGENTS, STATE OF IOWA

UI’s Neala Arnold, Board of Regents member, invites students to share concerns

Neala Arnold, a senior and student member of the Board of Regents, State of Iowa, invites students of Iowa's three public universities to share with her their concerns, ideas and suggestions. The Board of Regents is the governing agency that oversees the three universities -- the University of Iowa, Iowa State and University of Northern Iowa -- as well as the Iowa School for the Deaf and the Iowa Braille and Sight Saving School.

Arnold will be available Monday and Wednesday from 2 to 3 p.m. in her office, 211 Macbride Hall on the University of Iowa campus. Students can also contact her by e-mail, neala-arnold@uiowa.edu; by phone, (319) 335-1518; or by fax, (319)353-2575.

An elementary education major with a minor in English, Arnold was appointed to the nine-member Board of Regents by Gov. Tom Vilsack. She replaced former student Regent Lisa Ahrens, an Iowa State University student who resigned her post on the board earlier this year. Arnold will complete her term next April, when she could be reappointed by the board or replaced with a new student Regent. Arnold, who is from Bettendorf, Iowa, plans to graduate in May.
