Ingram named interim UI associate provost for undergraduate education

Beth Ingram, associate dean for undergraduate programs in the Henry B. Tippie College of Business, has been named interim associate provost for undergraduate education and dean of the University College at The University of Iowa, effective Jan. 1. She assumes the responsibilities previously held by Tom Rocklin, who left the Office of the Provost in September 2008 to become interim vice president for student services and dean of students.

Ingram will oversee UI academic support services, including the Office of Admissions, the Office of the Registrar, the Academic Advising Center, Student Financial Aid, the Center for Teaching, and Evaluation and Examination Services. She also will oversee the credit-generating units and programs that fall under the University College organizational unit, including the Honors Program, College Transition, Career Center programs, and study abroad.

Free one-act production will be presented at Brewery Square Dec. 5-12

A free production of Aristophanes' "The Congresswoman," directed by University of Iowa Department of Theatre Arts graduate student Sarah Ballema, will be presented at 8 p.m. Dec. 5-7 and 11-13 at Brewery Square, in conjunction with the MFA Directors One-Act Play Festival.

"The Congresswomen" is a bawdy comedy about women seizing control of the government. The women of Athens, fed up with war, are determined to put an end to the new trend of mixing money and politics by disguising themselves as men, sneaking into congress and convincing the assembly to vote women into power.

They barricade themselves in the Acropolis and force everyone to cope with the new order as the women communalize property, food and even sex.

The presentation includes material of an adult nature. Potential audience members who are concerned whether the show is appropriate for them should call 319-335-2700 for additional information.

Seating at Brewery Square, at the corner of Linn and Market Streets, is extremely limited. Visit to reserve a seat.
