Welcome to the Panther Caucus, a group of alumni, students and friends working to increase public and legislative support for the University of Northern Iowa. Periodic emails will be sent to Panther Caucus members about some of the great things happening at UNI. Sign up for the Panther Caucus mailings or follow Panther Caucus on Twitter through @nipanthercaucus.
On Monday, Feb. 16, UNI students, faculty and staff will travel to the Iowa Capitol to host UNI Day in the rotunda of the Statehouse from 1 to 3 p.m.
This is a great opportunity to learn about the wonderful academic programs UNI has to offer, our cutting edge research and amazing student organizations. Meet President Bill Ruud, take pictures with our mascot TC and hear a performance by a string trio representing UNI's School of Music. This is also the perfect time for alumni to reconnect with their alma mater and advocate on our behalf.
"Last year's event was such a great success," said Mary Braun, UNI's state relations officer. "We had such a great turnout in faculty, students and alumni. It really drove home to legislators how important UNI is to families, schools and businesses of Iowa. I expect this year to be even better, featuring more programs and numerous alumni expressing an interest in attending and advocating on our behalf."
Please join us for UNI Day at the Capitol. If you can't attend, contact your local senator or representative and remind them about the unique and valuable role UNI plays in Iowa.
