Time: 5:30 am - 7:00 pm

Patrice Sayre will be speaking on The Regent Universities - The Pursuit of Education, Research and Service to Iowa and the World. You remember your years at college - walking across the campus through all seasons, engaged in significant learning, finding a passion that will carry you into a job. You attended stadium and arena sports, sat in theater and music halls, lived in dormitories or off campus housing. But what do you know about the rest of the institution? How many people worked there? What research was occurring? How were decisions made? How many acres of buildings had to be maintained? Through charts, graphs, slides and conversation, Patrice will walk us through the hidden side of the Regent universities.

The valuable information provided at this meeting is for one hour of CPE.
