Skorton To Deliver President's Keynote Sept. 24

Starting a new University of Iowa tradition, President David J. Skorton will deliver the President's Annual Keynote on at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 24, in the second floor ballroom OF the Iowa Memorial Union. Skorton's address, "Inquiry," will outline themes and direction for the university, setting the dominant tone for the coming academic year.

The event is free and open to the public. A reception will follow the address. Faculty, staff and students are especially encouraged to attend.

In recent years the president's annual address has taken place at the University Convocation each fall. Skorton decided to separate the events to keep the focus of Convocation on recognizing faculty, staff, and student excellence. This year's Convocation is scheduled for at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 30.
