University of Iowa

Message from Associate Provost

Linda Snetselaar
The Provost’s Office of Outreach and Engagement is dedicated to the mission of growing mutually beneficial partnerships with Iowa communities and enhancing the curricular efforts that shape teaching and learning on campus for faculty, staff, and students. This mission comes in the form of projects, performances, workshops, community-based research, and other initiatives that address issues related to economic and community development, cultural vitality, sustainability, community health, and enhance the overall quality of life in Iowa. As we pursue our vision to be a catalyst for innovative teaching, learning, and research at the university, transforming communities throughout Iowa, and preparing students to be global citizens, we contribute to the university's goals of  research & discovery, student success, and engagement. In these efforts, we are guided by our core values of relationships, respect, humility, excellence, and creativity.

I encourage you to follow our office's work through our newsletter, on social media, here on our website, or contact our staff for more information. We continually look forward to new opportunities to collaborate and inspire the campus and the state.

Linda Snetselaar
Associate Provost for Outreach and Engagement
