President Coleman hosts fireside chat May
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- University of Iowa President Mary
Sue Coleman will host the final "fireside chat" of the academic
year Tuesday, May 4 from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Richey Ballroom in the Iowa Memorial
Union. President Coleman established this informal discussion series three
years ago to provide students with an opportunity to communicate their concerns
and ideas directly to her and her cabinet. Dr. David Skorton, vice president
for research, will attend the May 4 event.
All interested students may attend, but invitations
are being sent to 500 students chosen at random from the Registrars
list of current students.
The chats are co-sponsored by the UI Student Government
and the Presidents Office.
Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend
all University of Iowa events. If you are a person with a disability who requires
