UNI will host its inaugural training conference, Elect Her–Campus Women Win, the only program in the country that encourages and trains college women to run for student government and future political office. A collaboration between AAUW and Running Start, Elect Her addresses the need to expand the pipeline to women running for office and to diminish the longstanding political leadership gender gap.
Participants will garner hands-on campaign skills, hear from inspiring local speakers and discuss research on women in government. The day will conclude with an opportunity to network with female leaders from various agencies throughout the community. There is no cost for this event; breakfast and lunch will be provided. Registration is required.
The UNI Museum has received funding from Humanities Iowa, a private, non-profit state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, to host a presentation called Camp Dodge: Home Away From Home, 1917-1918 by Michael Vogt, Curator at the Iowa Gold Star Museum. A cultural Resource for Iowans since 1971, Humanities Iowa offers many cultural and historical programs and grants to Iowa’s communities.
This presentation will illustrate the organization, construction, and the various aspects of military life and training at Camp Dodge during the First World War using period photos from the Iowa Gold Star Museum’s collection. This lecture will accompany Answering the Call: The Cedar Valley, Iowa, and World War I, the latest exhibit on display at the UNI Museum. The exhibit examines Iowa’s contributions to World War I and the changes that were happening on the home front during this time. Both the exhibit and presentation are free and open to the public.
