University of Iowa Veterans Association (UIVA)
The University of Iowa Veterans Association (UIVA) is a group of veterans and supporters interested in helping veterans and returning reservists at The University of Iowa adjust to and integrate into University life. Additionally, the group aims to support persons still serving as well as their families, and to raise awareness among fellow students of the daily sacrifices made on their behalf.
This is not a pro-war or anti-war group. It is a pro-service member group for veterans, reservists, and supporters. People of all political ideologies are welcome.
