Aligning UI strengths and aspirations with the world's needs
The University of Iowa's unique constellation of strengths—in areas ranging from biomedicine and water resources to the arts and international law—are precisely aligned with some of the most urgent challenges we face as a global society. With the additional resources that the For Iowa. Forever More. campaign will make available, the UI can develop new ways to bring its creativity and expertise to bear across the world.
The leadership of the university and the UI Foundation have identified campaign priorities that will allow the UI to direct resources toward areas in which it excels and is poised for even greater achievement. The priority-setting process revealed three common aspirations at the heart of this campaign:
- Educating our students—the leaders of tomorrow—to thrive in a complex, global society
- Ensuring a healthier and more sustainable world through discoveries in medicine, allied health fields, and environmental science
- Enriching commerce, culture, and communities for Iowans through creative entrepreneurship in business, the arts and humanities, social sciences, and civic literacy and engagement
By targeting resources toward these three areas, the University of Iowa can realize its vision to become one of the most prominent, innovative, solutions-focused universities in the world.
