President Coleman will give UI update to Iowa City service clubs
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- University of Iowa President Mary Sue Coleman will
give the annual "condition of the university" speech to a joint
meeting of Iowa City service clubs at noon Thursday, Jan. 21 at the Radisson
on Highlander Plaza. Her multimedia presentation is titled "Surpassing
Expectations: A University of Iowa Update."
The annual speech by the UI president is a tradition of more than 40
years and is designed to strengthen the "town-gown" relationship
between the university and the surrounding communities, including Iowa
City, Coralville, North Liberty, Clear Creek and Solon.
"We are pleased to have President Coleman as our guest for this
traditional event," said Gary Pacha, president-elect of the Iowa City
Noon Rotary Club. "It's a wonderful way for us to get together and
celebrate the interdependence of the university and our communities."
