President Coleman schedules fourth "fireside" chat for Feb. 26

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- The fourth in a series of "fireside chats" between University of Iowa students and President Mary Sue Coleman is scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 26, from 7-9 p.m. in the Triangle Ballroom at the Iowa Memorial Union.

The chats, which are co-sponsored by Coleman and the UI Student Government, are designed to give UI students an opportunity to talk directly with the president, asking questions or relating their concerns about university issues.

Invitations will be sent to 500 students chosen at random from the list of current students on record in the office of the registrar. The same process will be followed for issuing invitations to fireside chats in March and April.

Jon Whitmore, UI provost, will participate with Coleman in the Feb. 26 chat.
