The University of Northern Iowa Foundation continues to enthusiastically focus on propelling the university forward in partnership with you—the Panther family. In that spirit, UNI President Mark Nook recently announced the exciting addition of Jim Jermier to our team to serve as the new UNI Foundation president and head of the UNI Advancement Division effective July 29, 2019.
As we prepare to embark with new leadership and a renewed level of energy on the path before us, we also want to take a moment to celebrate our recent successes at the foundation and the university—all of which have been driven by your continued and unwavering support.
You are a vital piece of the success UNI fosters in its students! We see time and time again that this success carries students long past graduation. In the most recent fiscal year, your participation and many contributions have allowed:
- The Focus on Students Scholarship Initiative to wrap up a five-year campaign and surpass the original $40 million scholarship goal by raising $53,099,032 in student support. In the process, donors like you have created 249 new scholarships for students at UNI!
- $22,861,368 to be raised from donors to the university to support UNI, its students, programs, faculty and staff.
- $14,042,972 in direct support to be provided by the UNI Foundation, all of which is pointed to helping the university fulfill its mission.
The college experience is often described as a catapult. The experiences gained and knowledge acquired give students forward momentum as they launch into the world. At the UNI Foundation, it is YOU—our donors, alumni and friends—who continue to push forward with us and build the momentum to carry our great university into a new era.
Thank you for sharing your Panther Pride with us.
