Lindsay plans to spend the morning and afternoon of Oct. 15 meeting with UI faculty and administrators to learn how the flood of 2008 affected the UI arts and humanities campus and programs. UI administrators plan to use part of the presentation program to recognize faculty and staff who recently received NEH awards, other federal and foundation grants and fellowships in the arts and humanities, and UI Arts and Humanities Initiative Awards.
