Black in Business Series

The Center for Diversity and Enrichment and the Tippie College of Business created the Black in Business series, in collaboration with the Division of Student Life's Being Black@Iowa Project, to expand the dialogue in the Black community around issues of higher education, business, and entrepreneurship.

One Community, One Book

Begun in 2001, the UI Center for Human Rights's One Community, One Book reading program invites community members to read and come together to discuss the same book with human rights or social justice themes. These discussion forums typically take place from September through November each year and a capstone event will be held during that time.

Center for Human Rights

Affiliated with the University of Iowa’s College of Law, the University of Iowa Center for Human Rights (UICHR) has as its mission the promotion and protection of human rights at home and abroad through distinguished multidisciplinary leadership in human rights research, education, and public service to The University of Iowa, its surrounding communities, the State of Iowa, and beyond.

School and Community Partnership (SCP) Program

The Center for Diversity and Enrichment coordinates outreach efforts to underserved K-12 students from diverse backgrounds, including students of color, first-generation students whose parents have not received a baccalaureate degree, and students from low-income families.
