Dr. Tovar will also highlight unique and important partnerships with campus units and surrounding communities that elevate Hawkeye success.

It was interesting to learn about the University's strong commitment to helping it athletes excel not only in the classroom, during competition and in life. It makes me proud of our athletes that take advantage of the great opportunities offered at the U of I.
