Hawkeye Lunch and Learn
The University for Iowa: A Legacy of Service and EngagementAs Iowa’s first public university, the University of Iowa has a proud history of improving the lives of Iowans across three different centuries. From the sciences to the arts and humanities to health care and beyond, the UI has long seen its mission of teaching, research, and service as part of a whole—ultimately, to engage with the people of Iowa to make life better for everyone across the state and beyond. President Mason will explore a number of historical milestones in the university’s ongoing aspiration to fulfill its mission for the benefit of the people of Iowa, the nation, and the world.
Magical Mythical Tour: In Search of the Beatles
Hawkeye Lunch and Learn with Donna Parsons, UI Lecturer in the Honors Program and School of Music. The talk is titled “Magical Mythical Tour: In Search of the Beatles” and is part of the Hawkeye Lunch and Learn lecture series sponsored by The University of Iowa Provost’s Office of Outreach and Engagement.
Sean O’Harrow invited a Des Moines audience to hear a tale of artistic adventure when he presented at a University of Iowa Hawkeye Lunch and Learn lecture on the conservation of Jackson Pollock’s "Mural," perhaps the most significant and influential painting in American art since World War II.
The Provost’s Office of Outreach and Engagement debuted the Hawkeye Lunch and Learn lecture series in January 2014 at the UI John and Mary Pappajohn Education Center in Des Moines. Linda Snetselaar, Associate Provost for Outreach and Engagement stated “We want to highlight ways the university is working with partners across the state, strengthening existing relationships and creating new ones”.
The Hawkeye Lunch and Learn events are offered monthly in Des Moines. Since the debut earlier this year, the lecture series has grown and currently offers lectures in the Iowa City area and at Rotaries across the state.
The lecture series is designed to connect Iowa communities, university faculty, government, and industry leaders. The UI Provost's Office of Outreach & Engagement sponsors the series. For questions regarding the Hawkeye Lunch and Learn events, please contact Outreach and Engagement Liaison Erika Christiansen at 319-335-0219.
