Peacocks for Progress is a program developed to unite the Upper Iowa University home campus in Fayette and the surrounding communities to work together to create a fun, safe and beautiful living environment.
What you can do:
Submit your request for community service projects (includes painting, raking, etc.) to the Office of Student Development located on the Fayette campus with a donation (to be given back to the City of Fayette or Fayette County).
OSD will complete the task no matter how big or how small – all you have to do is include any and all supplies needed to complete the task or arrange for special accommodations through Daryl Grove, Director of Student Leadership and Adventure.
All projects will be completed on a first come, first serve basis. The projects must also meet Upper Iowa University’s liability standards.
Peacocks for Progress in an ongoing, year-round program.

Fayette Appreciation Day (FAD) is the largest service event on campus, engaging more than 450 students, faculty and staff; as well as countless community members. Since the 2004-05 academic year, FAD has positively impacted the lives of thousands of Fayette residents and beyond.
Converging on the rural northeast Iowa community and stretching beyond the city limits via highway and Volga River clean up, UIU students, faculty and staff do their part to beautify and help those in need.
