Welcome New Employees!
Welcome to the University of Northern Iowa. The UNI community works together to provide a learning-centered approach to exceptional undergraduate and graduate education programs.
We are proud of our 140-year tradition of excellence in higher education, as we continually rank among the top three Midwest public universities in U.S. News & World Report’s "America’s Best Colleges" guidebook. We have a rich academic heritage, 100,000-plus alumni, and outstanding faculty and staff working to provide all students with the amenities of a large university in a personalized setting.
Our university community is vibrant and exciting. I invite you to explore the wealth of opportunities available and take advantage of the many activities our university and the Cedar Valley have to offer. I hope you consider attending musicals, plays, student organized events, and intercollegiate athletic events to support our students and engage with the UNI community.
I am confident you will find your professional connection with the University of Northern Iowa to be challenging and fulfilling. Best wishes, and I hope to see you on campus soon.
