Chat From the Old Cap: Malcolm Christie
3:00 pm - 4:00 pm (CDT)

Join former Hawkeye football offensive lineman and Iowa graduate Malcolm Christie (97BA) as he shares stories about his time as a student-athlete for legendary coaches Hayden Fry and Kirk Ferentz. He will share his unlikely journey full of pitfalls and redemption, with a fair share of humor -a candid and provocative conversation. Christie will also discuss an endowment he created in Fry´s honor.

Christie is a current board member and alumni liaison for the UI School of Journalism and Mass Communication´s Professional Advisory Board. He´s had an extensive career in corporate leadership and fundraising and has worked for Wellmark Blue Cross Blue Shield, United Way, and most recently, as development director for the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) in Southern California. 

Through all of Christie´s professional accomplishments, never lost was his adoration for the state and University of Iowa along with his profound love for both Fry and Ferentz. Before leaving UNCF, Christie decided to pay tribute to Fry and show his unwavering respect by creating the UNCF Hayden Fry Endowment, which will provide support for students of color to attend the University of North Texas, Southern Methodist University, and the University of Iowa-the three schools where Fry coached.

"I wouldn't be who I am today without the University of Iowa," says Christie, "All the liabilities I had became assets for me. That's why it's important for me to give back to Iowa-not just with my money, but with my time. I'm proud I was born and raised in Jersey City, but I truly grew up in Iowa."

Register now to join Christie for this virtual event.

Fellow Professional Advisory Board member, and former Iowa student, Isaiah Scales will host. Scales currently works as a creative services manager for Disney in Los Angeles.

Chat From the Old Cap is a series of virtual engagement sessions featuring Iowa alumni and friends sharing stories from their careers, backgrounds, and the university that unites us.

The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a financial exigency which threatens our continued ability to adequately support 24 intercollegiate athletics programs at the desired championship level. With the Big Ten Conference's postponement of fall competition on August 11, UI Athletics now projects lost revenue of approximately $100M and an overall deficit between $60-75M this fiscal year. A loss of this magnitude will take years to overcome. We have a plan to recover, but the journey will be challenging. In that context, we are writing today with some extremely difficult news. In consultation with the Board of Regents, State of Iowa, we have made the decision to discontinue four of our varsity sports programs at the conclusion of the 2020-21 academic year: men's gymnastics, men's and women's swimming and diving, and men's tennis. Each of these teams will have the opportunity to compete in their upcoming 2020-21 seasons, should the circumstances surrounding COVID-19 permit, before they are discontinued at the varsity level. Read the full announcement. If you have any questions about your Athletics donation, please call (319) 467-3410 or email?uiowa@foriowa.org.
