Hello, my name is Lon Moeller. I am the Associate Dean for the Undergraduate Program in the Henry B. Tippie College of Business at the University of Iowa. This is my blog. I plan to “blog” (apparently a new-aged way to say “write”) about what is going on in the College of Business for our students, alumni and anyone else who is interested in the College or the University of Iowa. Let’s all hope I have something to say.
Welcome to My Blog. Let’s Hope I Have Something Interesting to Say.
Tippie and the Pappajohn Business Building Make List of the “Most Beautiful Business Schools in the World”
Tippie students know how special it is to study business at the Pappajohn Business Building. It was great to see that Tippie and the Pappajohn Business Building was ranked as the 20th “most beautiful business school in the world” -http://www.topmanagementdegrees.com/beautiful-business-schools/.
As part of yesterday’s Roadmap Rally events, we had several events in the Pappajohn Business Building that focused on international business and creating a global perspective. A highlight of the afternoon was a group photograph of Tippie students and faculty celebrating the many different countries represented by our Tippie students. See if you can find your favorite Tippie faculty member in the picture. Several students as you can see are also holding Henry B. Tippie’s picture.
The Undergraduate Program Office invites you to the Tippie Research Fair, a poster session highlighting scholarship and research conducted in the Tippie College of Business. Posters will be on display beginning at 9:30 a.m. in the Howe Galleria; presenters will be available for questions and comments from 3:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. The fair is happening in conjunction with the Tippie College Roadmap Rally, a week that highlights and celebrates the ways in which students can engage and shape their time in the College. Events are organized around the four different areas of the Roadmap—Curriculum, Global Perspective, Experiential Learning, Leadership—and challenge Tippie students to think outside just what classes they’re going to take next semester.
Come join us in celebrating Roadmap Rally week, a time for University of Iowa business students to expand their knowledge about different programs offered by the Tippie College of Business, network with Tippie alums, and expand their knowledge about business. The schedule of daily events can be found at http://tippie.uiowa.edu/rally/.
Tippie alums (and Young Alumni Board members) Lucy Krol and Justin Welsh are featured as “Iowa Success Stories” by the University’s Office of Admissions – check out their stories at the following links:
Barb Thomas and I visited with Tippie graduates who work for the Principal in Des Moines yesterday. Special thanks to Principal CFO and Executive Vice President Terry Lillis – a great Tippie supporter and a person who is interested in the success of Tippie students – who hosted the event. It was great to chat with several Tippie alums, including Scott Bennett, Barb McKenzie, Dennis Menken, Greg Elming, Jeff Steiff (Jeff is getting married this summer – congrats), and Wyatt Boshart. In talking to Terry Lillis, I discovered that Terry grew up in Williamsburg, Iowa and taught school for a year in Belle Plaine, Iowa – hometown of Henry B. Tippie. Terry’s daughter Jennie Lillis Baranczyk (an Iowa grad herself and a former Hawkeye basketball player) is the head women’s basketball coach at Drake University in Des Moines.

I had intended to do some grading tonight; however, I was distracted by Netflix and my new Keurig coffee maker. It was nice to catch up with House of Cards tonight over a cup of coffee.
