Why is it important for faculty and staff to give back?

In addition to the resources your gifts help make available, your participation also demonstrates—to students and their parents, alumni, friends, donors, public officials, and others who support Iowa—that UI faculty and staff believe wholeheartedly in the UI’s mission and in the power of higher education. That’s a powerful endorsement and can enhance our ability to garner support (financial and otherwise) from potential supporters outside the university.
