The University of Iowa stands at the threshold of an era of great promise, and we must act quickly and boldly to bring change to life for new generations. For Iowa. Forever More: The Campaign for the University of Iowa will help us do just that. Through this comprehensive $1.7 billion initiative, we can ensure that the UI will become what this new century demands: a more adaptable, global, interdisciplinary, and solutions-focused institution that can continue to fulfill its historic mission of education, research, and service.

For Iowa. Forever More. will help us fulfill these three crucial priorities:

  • Educating our students—the leaders of tomorrow—to thrive in a complex, global society.
  • Ensuring a healthier and more sustainable world through scientific and medical discoveries.
  • Enriching commerce, culture, and communities for Iowans and citizens beyond our borders.

These goals have never been more important than now, during a time when public universities must become more entrepreneurial and self-supporting than ever. We are grateful to the university’s generous contributors, who help us fulfill these objectives by funding a broad array of needs—from student scholarships, breakthrough research, and life-changing health care to innovative facilities, community outreach, and global education.

Together, we can help our university remain “proudly at the fore” of innovation and excellence—and we can ensure a bright future for Iowa…forever more.
