At the University of Iowa we understand the link between diversity and excellence in education, and we embrace our responsibility to create a welcoming environment for all members of the university community. This commitment includes all of our students, staff, and faculty as they pursue their goals here at Iowa. But the outcome of those efforts really depends on you as a member of our community.
We invite you to ally with us by becoming engaged in our diversity efforts. Sign up for a workshop or take a class to advance your understanding of other cultures or your own, join a committee or organization that focuses on diversity, attend a diversity-related performance or lecture, or become a conversation partner with someone from another country. Need more alone time? Read an article or book that provides a perspective different from your own or that enhances your knowledge of other cultures. Or turn to the internet: our new website is designed to connect you with resources and events close to home. We invite your feedback and input as we continually develop this site as a portal to diversity at Iowa.
