Celebrate UIU Day
Virtual Event  |

As another example of its response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Upper Iowa University has shifted the focus and purpose of its fourth annual Giving Day to “Celebrate UIU Day.” Supporters will have 1,857 minutes to make a difference for the Student Emergency Aid Fund. Gifts will directly help students in need by relieving stress caused by an unforeseen financial setback, allowing students to stay focused on their academic goals. Click "Designations" above to learn more about this fund and additional Celebrate UIU Day designation options. 

Realizing that many around the world may be facing financial insecurity, alums and supporters of UIU can still participate in Celebrate UIU Day by simply sharing a favorite UIU photo or memory on social media. We encourage all of our Peacock Family to spread some positivity, letting the world know what UIU means to them.
