Lifelong Learning


Learning is a lifetime process, not something that ends with graduation. The UI Alumni Association, along with various partners across campus, is committed to providing enrichment through Lifelong Learning programs. Each year, at events held in cities across Iowa, UI faculty and staff share their knowledge and experience with alumni and friends of the university. Topics range from health issues and current events to career development.

The John and Mary Pappajohn Education Center
1200 Grand Avenue
Des Moines, Iowa 50309

Worried about whether your children watch too much media—and what they're learning? Do you want them to be able to focus attention, set goals, and control emotions?

Join UI Associate Professor of Education Deborah Linebarger for a discussion on such issues, including a new Sesame Street project that uses Cookie Monster to help preschoolers learn self-control skills. Before the event, a welcome reception will be held for Christopher Morphew, new executive associate dean for research and innovation at the College of Education.
