Rainbow Alumni Network Formed At UI

A new Rainbow Alumni Network has been formed for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) alumni of the University of Iowa, and an initial meeting of the group will take place at 10 a.m. May 7 in the Iowa Room of the Iowa Memorial Union.

The group will be planning networking events for GLBT alumni, current students, parents and supporters as well as organizing forums and presentations to stimulate intellectual enrichment and professional growth of GLBT alumni. The Rainbow Alumni Network also plans to provide advocacy opportunities and influence the role and direction of the university in GLBT-related issues.

GLBT alumni and friends can also stay connected through a new listserv by sending an email to LISTSERV@LIST.UIOWA.EDU with the text "SUBSCRIBE RAINBOW-ALUMNI."

For more information on the Rainbow Alumni Network, contact Carlos Ferdandez Serrato at 319-335-3059, carlos-serrato@uiowa.edu.
