UI holds first annual emeritus faculty meeting June 19

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- University of Iowa President Mary Sue Coleman and Women's Basketball Head Coach Lisa Bluder will speak at the first annual meeting of the university's newly formed Emeritus Faculty Association at 10 a.m. Monday, June 19 in the Senate Chamber of the Old Capitol.

Meeting business will include a report on a recent survey of emeritus faculty members, adoption of organizational by-laws, and a report on a recent national meeting of emeritus faculty organizations held in San Diego. James A. Clifton, current president of the Emeritus Faculty Council and professor emeritus of internal medicine, and Samuel L. Becker, president elect and professor emeritus of communication studies, will preside. The meeting will conclude with a no-host lunch in the River Room of the Iowa Memorial Union.

Formed in 1999, the Emeritus Faculty Association represents the interests of its 465 emeritus faculty members -- about two-thirds of whom reside in the Iowa City area -- and aids them in their continued support of university programs and goals. All UI faculty members automatically become members of the association upon retirement.

Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all UI-sponsored events. Persons with disabilities who require an accommodation in order to participate should contact the Old Capitol in advance at 335-0548.
