Another chat with President Coleman to be Jan. 25
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- University of Iowa President Mary Sue Coleman is
continuing her tradition of holding "fireside chats" to provide
students with an opportunity to communicate their concerns and ideas directly
to her and her cabinet. The first chat of the second semester will be Monday,
Jan. 25 from 7 to 9 p.m. in the R. Wayne Richey Ballroom (formerly the
Triangle Ballroom), located in the Iowa Memorial Union.
All interested students may attend, but invitations are being sent to
500 students chosen at random from the Registrar's list of current students.
The same process will be followed for issuing invitations to fireside chats
to be held throughout the academic year.
This is the third year President Coleman has held the informal discussions
with students. As in past years, a senior member of her administration
will also participate in each of the chats. General Counsel Mark Schantz
will attend the Jan. 25 event.
The chats are co-sponsored by the UI Student Government and the President's
Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University

Relations at 335-0557.
