The Hawkeye Life Program
Providing Student-Athletes with a Game Plan for Life
At the University of Iowa, we are committed to providing student-athletes with tools for success in the classroom, but we also are dedicated to preparing them for their paths in life. One way to help our student-athletes develop and grow, personally and professionally, is through the Hawkeye Life Program.
The Hawkeye Life Program is an all-encompassing life skills student development model that enhances the student-athlete experience and helps today's Hawkeyes engage in the world around them. The program has six pillars:
- Academic success
- Mid-American Energy Community Engagement
- Diversity and inclusion
- Health and well-being
- Career development
We need support from individuals like you to continue to provide robust experiences for our student-athletes. With your guidance and vision, Iowa's student-athletes will find success in competition, in the classroom, and in their future careers.
According to the most recent NCAA annual report on academic success, Iowa's student-athletes are graduating at an all-time high of 90 percent, which is fourth-highest in the Big Ten Conference and is highest among Iowa's four Division I institutions. Iowa's student-athletes also boast higher graduation rates than those who are not student-athletes, yet we know that our student-athletes must be better prepared for life after college.
To help our student-athletes receive a world-class experience, we need additional support. Your philanthropy will help us continue to provide the level of support and service our Hawkeyes require. Below are some funding ideas for consideration. Many other additional funding opportunities are available within the Hawkeye Life program. Please contact Sloane Tyler, or one of our athletic development officers at 319-335-3305 for more information.
