CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The University of Northern Iowa will host the first UNI Day from 1 to 3 p.m., Monday, Feb. 11, at the Iowa Capitol in Des Moines. The event will highlight UNI programs and inform legislators about the impact UNI has on the state.

"If we want the Legislature to provide adequate funding for UNI we must explain why we are so valuable to the state," said Jeneane Beck, state relations officer at UNI. "Having students and professors travel to the Statehouse puts a human face on the university."

UNI students, faculty and staff will showcase interactive displays highlighting various UNI programs, departments and organizations. Alumni are encouraged to attend to reconnect with their university and speak with their elected officials about the value of UNI.
