UNI PROUD is a student organization at the University of Northern Iowa, which is founded on the principles of promoting an inclusive and accepting campus environment for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, and Ally individuals (LGBTIA). The easiest way to get involved is by attending our weekly meetings, Tuesdays at 7pm in the Presidential Room of the Maucker Union (lower level). We also organize and host several events throughout the school year.
