Tuition will be topic for Oct. 4 fireside chat with
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 proposed tuition increase will be among the topics
discussed at the next chat which is scheduled for Monday, Oct. 4 at 7 p.m.
in the R. Wayne Richey Ballroom, Iowa Memorial Union.
Invitations have been sent to 500 students chosen
at random from the Registrar's list of current students. All interested students
are welcome to attend.
This is the fourth year Coleman has held these informal
discussions with students. As in past years, a senior member of her administration
will participate in each of the chats. Phillip E. Jones, vice president for
student services and dean of students will join Coleman at this event.
The chats are co-sponsored by the UI Student Government
and the President's Office.
Future fireside chats are scheduled for:
February 7, 2000
March 27, 2000
May 1, 2000
