This added spotlight on our work has prompted our office to revise our mission and vision. Our mission is to grow mutually beneficial partnerships and enhance curricular efforts by connecting faculty, staff, and student resources of the university to people and places across Iowa to positively impact community issues and opportunities. We listen to Iowa communities and try to help them achieve their local goals with our resources. This collaboration comes in the form of projects, performances, workshops and other initiatives that address issues related to economic and community development, arts and culture, sustainability, public health and enhance the overall quality of life in Iowa. Cumulatively, our work spans all of the university’s colleges and reaches 89 counties.
We encourage you to follow us as we pursue our vision: to be a catalyst for innovative teaching and learning at the university, transforming communities throughout Iowa, and preparing students to be global citizens. We continually look for new ways to collaborate and inspire the campus and the state.
