IOWA CITY, IOWA (September 16, 2020) More than 40 current students at the University of Iowa are helping to shape the future of the UI by serving on one of 18 charter committees that advise institutional leadership on topics ranging from diversity and teaching to research and intercollegiate athletics.

The charter committees are another example of the University's commitment to the long tradition of shared governance in which university-wide policies and initiatives are made in collaboration with the campus's many leaders and shared governance representatives.
