Fritz Oppenlander, director of the UIU North Central Region, said Upper Iowa University is in the process of selecting a location for the new center on the Iowa side of the Mississippi River in the Quad Cities area and that the center should be fully operational by early summer.
“The Quad Cities is an important location for Upper Iowa University, especially given our recent articulation agreement with the Eastern Iowa Community College District, which enables students from Clinton Community College, Muscatine Community College and Scott Community College to transfer seamlessly to UIU to complete a four-year degree,” said UIU President Alan G. Walker. “We look forward to having a full-fledged educational center to serve students from throughout the Quad Cities area, and we welcome them to the UIU community.”
Oppenlander said the UIU Quad Cities Center will offer courses leading to the completion of 13 majors: accounting, business administration, criminal justice, emergency and disaster management, health services administration, human resources management, human services, interdisciplinary studies, management, marketing, psychology, and public administration. Students also may take courses online to complete their degree, he added.
Daniel C. Marvin has been named director of the UIU Quad Cities Center. He comes to Upper Iowa University from Spoon River College where he was director of its Macomb, Ill., Campus. Previously he was coordinator of recruitment and retention efforts and academic support program specialist at West Kentucky Community and Technical College, Paducah, and a social service worker at Mayfield Youth Development Center, Mayfield, Ky. He earned his master’s degree in organization and management at Capella University as well as a post-master’s certificate in enrollment management and is currently completing his doctorate in leadership for higher education at Capella. He also earned bachelor’s degrees in psychology and criminal justice at Murray State University, Murray, Ky.
