A message about Hawkeye game day

Tuesday, October 27, 2020
Hey Hawkeyes! Like many of you, we are excited that the 2020 home football season begins this Saturday for our beloved Hawkeyes. This is undoubtedly an exciting time for many of us, however, we would like to take this opportunity to remind you of some of this year’s unique policies. As you are likely aware, fans are not allowed in the stadium for the games per B1G Ten Conference mandate, nor will tailgating be allowed.

Updated guidance for student engagement efforts and registered student organization activities

Thursday, August 27, 2020
To preserve the critical university mission of student success, all student engagement efforts and registered student organization activities are strongly encouraged to be moved to a virtual format. We have a shared responsibility to the communities in which we live, learn, work, and serve. By limiting the number of students, employees, and community members involved with in-person activities we will reduce the potential exposure to and spread of the virus – not only through our student population but many of the vulnerable community members living in the greater Iowa City area.

Student behavioral expectations on and off campus

Tuesday, August 25, 2020
Good afternoon, on August 15, all students were notified of the Code of Student Life and the Accountability Procedure used to respond to allegations that students have engaged in behavior which may violate campus policies. In observing individuals on campus as residence hall students have moved in, and countless other students have moved to Iowa City, I want to acknowledge the high level of compliance seen on university property.
