The University of Northern Iowa provides a high-quality and diverse educational experience, purposefully guiding students to find and develop their strengths and prepare them for success after college.  Building on its historic excellence in teacher education, UNI has developed outstanding programs in business, humanities, arts, sciences and social and behavioral sciences.  Advanced degrees are available in many programs.  UNI enjoys national recognition for its high educational standards.  U.S. News & World Report has ranked UNI in the top three Midwest public universities for the past 14 years.  UNI's size -- just under 12,000 students -- allows it to offer the faculty, facilities and academic choices of a large university, while retaining a friendly, small-college atmosphere on a compact, park-like campus.  For more information, see www.uni.edu or call us at 319-273-2281.
