Alumni in Residence

2019 Alumni in ResidenceThe University of Northern Iowa selects distinguished graduates to participate in the Alumni in Residence program. Accomplished alumni return to campus to speak with students about their professional experiences and help them make connections between what they learn in the classroom and practice in the professional realm. The selected alumni also meet with faculty groups to discuss current trends and issues in the workplace, tour campus and visit with student organizations about how extracurricular experiences can open doors during their job search. In addition to student and faculty discussions, the alumni are invited to attend a breakfast hosted by the UNI Alumni Association.

In fall 2019, the College of Education, with its partner colleges in the Teacher Education Program, welcomed six UNI alumni from Sergeant Bluff-Luton High School.
