The University of Iowa College of Liberal Arts and Sciences department of mathematics will hold its second annual minority graduate and professional students picnic from 2-6 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 8, 2002 at Shelter 6, City Park, Iowa City.

The picnic, featuring free food, games and prizes, is co-sponsored by the department, the Black Graduate and Professional Students (BGAPS), the Black Student Union, and other minority organizations. The free, public event is a student social event, as well as a celebration of the department's success in achieving a diverse and inclusive graduate student community which, with an enrollment consisting of about 25 percent U.S. minority students, is one of the most diverse in the country.
