Alumni & Friends

A world of connections

As a department, our goal is to engage and build healthy communities, lifestyles, and organizations. As alumni, you take those academic goals and make them a reality, and you give back. Whether that’s to a fund at the University of Northern Iowa, as a mentor to our students in the field, or as a volunteer in your communities and professions, you are continuing to represent the impact of your Panther education. 

Whether it’s a Hall of Excellence induction, sharing a success on the web, or being thankful for the generosity — and impact — of an endowed chair, your stories are part of our story.
