Sports have the power to change
women's lives.

That’s why the University of Iowa is committed to building championship-caliber athletics programs. Now it’s time to set the stage for the next generation of Hawkeyes.

Hawkeye Women: RISE is an innovative campaign that will impact Iowa’s women’s teams and its student-athletes. This campaign will help us build top-notch facilities, provide needed resources to student-athletes and coaches, and more.

As we embark on a transformational initiative to support women’s athletics at Iowa, we need your help. And we know Hawkeyes rise to the occasion.

At Iowa, Progress
Can’t Wait.

From a field hockey national championship to the first Power 5 school to offer women’s wrestling, the University of Iowa is at the forefront of both excellence and equity. To support and empower the next generation of student-athletes at Iowa, we’re embarking on a campaign to invest in world-class facilities and provide additional resources for women’s athletics teams.

Our Hawkeye Women: RISE campaign will transform the student-athlete experience for future generations.
