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.
