Big Ten Network gives UI stories another place to shine

The Big Ten Network provides University of Iowa sports teams with an outlet to showcase their athletic feats. The network will broadcast Iowa's homecoming football game versus Indiana, and the men's basketball team will be a regular fixture on the channel.


But if we're keeping score, let's not forget about the opportunity the network provides each Big Ten school to flaunt its stories from the world of academia and research.

“We have no shortage of stories to tell,” says Rick Klatt, director of athletic marketing and also a member of the programming committee. “We could easily produce three or four stories every week if we had the resources.”


Let's pretend you have all the resources needed to tell a story about The University of Iowa. Maybe you'd shine light on cutting-edge research; perhaps you'd rave about remarkable students. If you were creating programming about the University, what would your show be? Take a few minutes to answer the fyi reader survey at We'll publish answers in October.

Take the survey...


UI law professor to help revise state criminal code

James Tomkovicz, professor in the UI College of Law and an expert in criminal law and procedure, has been appointed to the legislature’s Criminal Code Reorganization Study Committee, a 15-member group that will review the entire Iowa Criminal Code and recommend changes to the state legislature. Tomkovicz hopes the scope of the committee's work will be extensive—it's been nearly three decades since the last revision.

Pamela Trimpe
Earlier this year, Pamela Trimpe was one of just 32 individuals selected to attend the Getty Museum Leadership Institute. Trimpe, director of Old Capitol Museum and the University of Iowa Museum of Natural History, was in the company of people representing the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, and the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh. Trimpe sat down with fyi to discuss her experience at the institute, what's new at UI museums, and fulfilling her longtime desire to work at the University.
