The University of Northern Iowa provides a high quality and diverse educational experience, purposefully guiding students to find and develop their strengths and prepare them for success after college. Building on its historic excellence in teacher education, the university has developed outstanding programs in business, natural sciences, humanities and fine arts, and social and behavioral sciences with advanced degrees available in many programs. \r\nOne of three state universities, UNI enjoys national recognition for its high educational standards. U.S. News and World Report has ranked UNI in the top three among Midwest public universities for the past 14 years.\r\nThe University’s size – just more than 13,200 students – allows it to offer faculty, facilities and academic choices of a large university, while retaining a friendly, small-college atmosphere on a compact, part-like campus. With more than 40 major buildings on 940 acres, the campus can still be crossed in an easy 15-minute walk.\r\nExperiential learning opportunities such as undergraduate research, internships, student teaching, international study programs, community service and cooperative education create a classroom connection with real-world experience. A rigorous liberal arts curriculum equips students with a broad understanding and knowledge of how to apply and acquire new information throughout life.\r\nActivities on campus are plentiful for both students and the community. The university offers a full calendar of fine- and performing arts events offered by music and theatre students, many of which take place in the acoustically outstanding Gallagher-Bluedorn Performing Arts Center. The GBPAC also hosts numerous national touring acts as part of its artist series. Panther athletics sponsors 18 varsity intercollegiate sporsts, eight men’s programs and 10 women’s programs.
