UNI Calendar of Events

Dean of Students

Trivia Night

The UNI Veterans Association and the LGBT* Center will host the Second Annual Trivia Night. Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third places. Everyone is welcome.

Green Zone training

Green Zone training is for faculty, students and staff who want to learn more about the military affiliated student experience. The goal is to train members of the UNI community to know more about the issues and concerns faced by military affiliated students and to identify individuals who are available to support these students. These individuals are not expected to be experts who can “solve problems.” They are individuals who can lend a sympathetic ear and help the student veteran identify and connect with the appropriate resources. Contact Norman Ferguson to register.

7th Annual Iowa Statewide Veterans Conference

UNI will host the 7th annual Military and Veterans State conference. The goal of this year's conference is to educate campuses and the Iowa community about the military culture and the diversity service members bring to our campuses. This also includes challenges to the transition process and how campuses can best be prepared to help military members succeed. Additionally, we want to bring awareness to military and veteran students of campus and community resources and how to be successful after college.

Military orientation

An informal orientation will be held for new and returning military or veteran students and/or family members. Staff from the Office of the Registrar, Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships, Office of Admissions, Office of Academic Advising, as well as the Black Hawk County VA office, will be on hand to provide important information and answer questions. Snacks and sodas will be provided.

Rainbow Reception

Rainbow Reception takes place at the beginning of each academic year as an evening of information sharing, networking, fellowship and dessert. Established in 2010, Rainbow Reception continues to serve as a yearly opportunity for UNI students, faculty and staff to welcome LGBT* students and their allies back to campus. More information about Rainbow Reception, hosted by the LGBT* Center, can be found atwww.uni.edu/lgbt

Lavender Graduation

Join us for the Fourth Annual Lavender Graduation Ceremony that celebrates the achievements of the UNI LGBT* community during the past year as well as recognizing its graduating seniors. The event will start with a program and awarding of Lavender cords to graduating seniors followed by social time and appetizers. For more information, contact lgbt@uni.edu.
