University of Northern Iowa

The University of Northern Iowa is a public university in Cedar Falls, Iowa. UNI offers more than 90 majors across the colleges of Business Administration, Humanities and Sciences, Social and Behavioral Sciences and graduate college; the fall 2019 enrollment was 10,497. More than 88 percent of its students are from the state of Iowa; the University of Northern Iowa was founded as a result of two influential forces of the nineteenth century. First, Iowa wanted to care for orphans of its Civil War veterans, secondly, Iowa needed a public teacher training institution. In 1876, when Iowa no longer needed an orphan home, legislators Edward G. Miller and H. C. Hemenway started the Iowa State Normal School; the school's first building was known as Central Hall. The building contained classrooms, common areas, a living facility for most of the students, it was a home to the college's first principal, James Cleland Gilchrist. The building was the heart and soul of the school, allowing students to study courses of two-year, three-year, four-year degrees.

In 1965, a fire destroyed Central Hall, school faculty and Cedar Falls citizens donated over $5,000 to start building Gilchrist Hall. The school has been known under the following names: Iowa State Normal School, 1876–1909 Iowa State Teachers College, 1909–1961 State College of Iowa, 1961–1967 University of Northern Iowa, 1967–present From 2014 through 2018 the UNI hosted the Midwest Summer Institute: Inclusion and Communication for All, a two-day conference on facilitated communication sponsored by the Inclusion Connection and Syracuse University's Institute on Communication and Inclusion. In 2018, just before the fifth annual conference held on June 18–19, a group of over thirty "researchers and academics around the globe" signed a letter to the UNI asking the university to cancel the conference because the practice has been "thoroughly discredited over 25 years ago"; the letter stated that "overwhelming scientific evidence suggests that facilitated communication constitutes a serious violation of the individual and human rights of people with disabilities, robbing them of the opportunity to communicate independently with available innovative technologies."

Proponents of the method have defended the conference. The National Council Against Health Fraud released an article, critical of the school's support of Facilitated Communication and summarized the American Speech–Language–Hearing Associations draft position on Facilitated Communication as a harmful pseudoscience; the 2018 conference was held as scheduled, but the university withdrew its support shortly thereafter. On Oct 24, 2018, Provost Jim Wohlpart announced. Critics were pleased with this result but are skeptical of UNI's statement that the workshop was hosted by an outside agency, as UNI continues to employ "current staff members who trained with Douglas Biklen. Since its founding, the university has had eleven presidents. James Cleland Gilchrist, 1876–1886 Homer Horatio Seerley, 1886–1928 Orval Ray Latham, 1928–1940 Malcolm Poyer Price, 1940–1950 James William Maucker, 1950–1970 John Joseph Kamerick, 1970–1983 Constantine William Curris, 1983–1995 Robert D. Koob, 1995–2006 Benjamin J. Allen, 2006–2013 William Ruud, 2013–2016 Mark Nook, 2017–present University of Northern Iowa Colleges include: Business Education Humanities and Sciences Social and Behavioral Sciences Graduate College The fall 2019 total semester enrollment was 10,497, the lowest since 1975.

Its freshman enrollment was 1,495. UNI president Mark Nook attributed the decline to increasing tuition, saying "we're too expensive"; the incoming class of 2016 marked the most diverse class in UNI's history with 11.2 percent minority students. Minority students now account for just over 10 percent of UNI's student body. UNI has implemented a Liberal Arts Core in order to provide a common liberal arts foundation for all undergraduate students. UNI provides an opportunity for the students to study in 25+ countries and select from over 40 programs; the mission of the Study Abroad Center at the University of Northern Iowa is to provide service and leadership in international education to UNI students, staff, the community and the State of Iowa. The Culture and Intensive English Program is an intensive program in English for non-native speakers, it is designed to prepare students for academic work at the graduate degree level. University of Northern Iowa students are encouraged to participate in the Conversation Partner Program to help foreign students with their English ability and foster cross-cultural relationships while gaining mutual understanding.

The university is the publisher of The North American Review, a celebrated literary magazine that began in Boston in 1815. Its past editors have included James Russell Lowell, Charles Eliot Norton, Henry Adams.
