Fox, Big Ten Network to launch 'Support the UI' Day Sunday

This Sunday, June 22, Fox and the Big Ten Network (BTN) will launch a daylong "Support the UI" day, running Public Service Announcements and a "screen crawl" sending TV viewers to our flood-fund giving page. The UI has also have received word that Fox's parent company, News Corporation, will match all gifts made during this one-day promotion. 

UI President Sally Mason's first priority is to use the UI Flood Relief Fund to assist students, faculty, and staff who have been displaced as a result of the flooding, and thereafter, to address other flood-related needs throughout the campus.
