Fethke Invites UI Community To Welcome New President

The following statement was issued today by University of Iowa Interim President Gary Fethke:

Dear Members of The University of Iowa Community:

Please join the Board of Regents and me in welcoming our new University of Iowa President to campus this afternoon. After a formal vote of the Board at 3 p.m. today in the Richey Ballroom of the Iowa Memorial Union, the new President will be introduced and will give brief remarks, followed by a 20-minute question-and-answer session for the UI community. There will be
limited seating, but please note that UITV will broadcast the event live and provide streaming video on the Internet.

From 4 p.m. to 5 p.m., there will be a reception in Hubbard Commons on the main floor of the IMU, so you will be able to personally greet our new President. We look forward to seeing you this afternoon to join us in celebrating this exciting day for The University of Iowa.

Gary Fethke
Interim President
