Hats off to staff, faculty for their commencement efforts

Before thousands of soon-to-be University of Iowa alumni venture off into the career market, many of them will make one last pit stop before leaving campus: commencement.

Behind all of the flat hats, pomp, and circumstance, a team of University staff and faculty has been working for months to ensure that everything—from setting up chairs to double-checking name spellings in programs to preparing a 15,500-seat area—runs smoothly.

New York graffiti artist Sandra Fabara, widely known by her alias, Lady Pink, collaborated last month with Deborah Whaley, UI assistant professor of American studies and African American studies, and UI art students to create an 8-foot by 20-foot spray painted mural. Fabara was on campus as part of a current exhibition by the University of Iowa Museum of Art.
