The Center for Inclusive Academic Excellence (CIAE) provides:

  • Pre-college student development.
  • Assistance with facilitating the enrollment process.
  • Academic coaching.

These programs and activities support historically marginalized, first-generation students and students from low socioeconomic backgrounds to thrive and succeed at the University of Iowa. 

Academic Coaches are available to support students throughout all aspects of their college experience. We want to make sure your transition to the university is a good one and that you are aware of campus opportunities.

We offer programs to enhance the cultural, social, and academic experiences of students. The programs have the goal of building community, celebrating cultures, and educating students on various topics.

We invite you to explore our website and the websites of all the Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion offices. We welcome suggestions for ways to enhance your experience at the University of Iowa; please do not hesitate to contact us for more information.
