IOWA CITY, Iowa -- University of Iowa President Mary
Sue Coleman will host the final "fireside chat" of the academic year Monday,
May 1 from 7 to 9 p.m. in the North Room in the Iowa Memorial Union.
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. Phillip Jones, vice president
and dean of students, will attend the May 1 event.
Invitations have been sent to 500 students chosen
at random from the registrar's list of current students. Any interested student
is welcome to attend.
The chats are co-sponsored by the UI Student Government
and the President's Office.
