We were honored to host the CEO of the UIAA, Jeff Kueter. We want to thank Jeff and the University for its commitment to strengthening relationships with alumni. It was incredible to spend time with fellow Hawkeyes and talk about how proud we are to be part of the University. Thank you to everyone who was able to make it out!



Recently UI President Sally Mason spoke at an event in Naples. How fantastic to have all of these Iowa connections in Southwest Florida!
