Alliant Energy Award

The Alliant Energy/Erroll B. Davis, Jr. Achievement Award was created to honor Erroll B. Davis, Jr. and his nearly 30 years of service to the utility industry and to honor and recognize the importance of scholarship and leadership by underrepresented minority students in the state of Iowa. The award recognizes academic achievement in business or engineering, leadership in campus and community organizations, and potential for future career success. We are requesting your assistance in encouraging qualified candidates to apply for this opportunity.

Phased Retirement Program

The current phased retirement program for faculty and staff will expire on June 30, 2017 (by action of the Board of Regents in 2011).  The Board has yet to take action to renew the phased retirement program, and it is anticipated that the earliest a decision would be made is December of this year.

Major lecture on internationalization

The University of Iowa is pleased to invite you to two special events in the 2016-2017 Commitment to Internationalization lecture series.
