President Coleman will give UI update to Iowa City service clubs Jan. 21

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."
