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.
