Campaign surpasses goal - thanks to generous alumni, friends and campus community.

Amount raised as of December 2012:  $157,857,609.48

The Imagine the Impact campaign ended December 31, 2012. On behalf of all current and future students at the University of Northern Iowa, we are grateful for the generous support of thousands of alumni, friends and campus community. Together, they helped the campaign surpass its $150 million goal, making it the largest fundraising effort in UNI's history.

The launch of the national campaign was celebrated at the McLeod Center October 23, 2010. (Watch the campaign kick off video below.)

The Vision

The vision is for the University of Northern Iowa to:

  • be known as leading undergraduate institution
  • be known as a leader in Pre-K through 12 issues
  • enhance the cultural and economic development of Iowa

At the center of the vision, imagine students taught by the most accomplished professors and leaders. Imagine a university that offers students outstanding opportunities to explore, to effect change and to excel beyond what they ever dreamed.

Imagine the resources it takes to achieve the vision...

Scholarships - total raised:  $62,007,533
Scholarship support ensures an accessible and affordable education for a talented, diverse student body.

Faculty and Program Support - total raised:  $86,730,767
Nationwide, the competition for outstanding faculty is keen. We must maintain efforts to support recruitment, retention and recognition of the most accomplished faculty through chairs, professorships and fellowships.

Program enhancements include lectureships, Dean's Funds for Excellence and academic support for research, travel and updates on equipment.
