Jump Start

Jump Start Group

Jump Start is an extended orientation program designed to facilitate the successful transition of underrepresented students to the University of Northern Iowa. Students from ethnic and racial minority groups and students who have participated in TRIO programs (such as Upward Bound and Educational Talent Search) are mailed invitations to Jump Start, and other students are welcome to contact Kristin Woods in the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs (319-273-2332) if they are interested in participating as well.
