University of Iowa officials, speaking at the state Board of Regents meeting Tuesday in West Des Moines, said they are confident in the completion dates for several flood-damaged campus buildings.

The progress has been slowed because of delays by Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Funding totaling about $111 million is still needed to complete the projects, said Douglas True,l the UI senior vice president for Finance. Roughly $260 million has been provided by FEMA.

An event to unveil the reconstruction plans for the new music buildings, art building, and Hancher will be held Nov. 9.

"It's a way to ask for approval of the schematic design," True said, adding the event is an opportunity to get feedback from community members, regents, and UI officials.
