The University of Iowa Center for Advancement encompasses all that our alumni and friends do to strengthen the University of Iowa. Our mission is to advance the University of Iowa through engagement and philanthropy. We are committed to engaging everyone who loves the University of Iowa—alumni, fans, patients, art lovers, students, parents, and friends—through programming, events, and opportunities to give back.
A 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the UI Center for Advancement was formed by joining the UI Alumni Association and the UI Foundation to better serve our alumni and friends in the state and the region, throughout the country, and around the world. UICA is an independent organization and the preferred channel for private contributions that benefit all areas of the University of Iowa. We are located in the Levitt Center for University Advancement, on the north edge of campus (adjacent to Hancher Auditorium).
