Our mission is to advance the University of Iowa through engagement and philanthropy. A nonprofit IRC Sec. 501(c)(3) organization, the UI Center for Advancement is an independent organization and the preferred channel for private contributions that benefit all areas of the University of Iowa. Located in the Levitt Center for University Advancement, we are governed by a volunteer board of directors that elects our officers and appoints our leadership. Our work is also guided by our volunteer Alumni Leadership Council, which serves as the university’s alumni advisory body and includes alumni representing areas across campus.
