The Center for Diversity & Enrichment offers the Iowa First Nations summer program for high school students and the Iowa Edge program for students entering The University of Iowa.

Precollege Program of Study

Iowa First Nations

The Iowa First Nations program enables students entering grades 11 and 12 to explore the educational opportunities offered on the University of Iowa campus and by higher education in general. Iowa First Nations students live on campus for a week (Monday through Friday), spending five nights in one of the University's residence halls. They go on structured field trips to campus departments, participate in hands-on classroom experiences, and take part in activities on campus and in the community.

Undergraduate Program

The Iowa Edge

The Iowa Edge program supports incoming students as they make their transition to The University of Iowa. The program takes place the week before fall semester classes begin. Iowa Edge students move into the residence halls early, learn about campus resources, become familiar with the campus setting, and build community with other students. Current UI students serve as Iowa Edge peer leaders, facilitating the program.
