The Grout Museum of History & Science is the venue for the inaugural display of a traveling exhibit created by the UNI Center for Holocaust and Genocide Education on the contact between Native Americans, European explorers and traders, and American settlers in Iowa. The exhibit focuses on different conceptions and uses of land on the part of Native Americans, Europeans and Americans that shaped the interactions of these groups. "Whose Land Is This?" highlights federal, state, county and other sites related to Native Americans in Iowa and the history of exploration, colonization and settlement in the state.

UNI Minority Educators of Today and Tomorrow

UNI Minority Educators of Today and Tomorrow

Sunday, June 16, 2019 (All day) to Friday, June 21, 2019 (All day)

UMETT is a week-long, overnight summer program for minority students, age 15+, going into their junior or senior year of high school. Students stay on the UNI campus and participate in hands on activities with area youth. The UMETT Program seeks to build or maintain students' interest in teaching, in attending UNI as an education major (or other major), or in pursuing a teaching career with a partner school district.

Why UMETT?

  • There is a state and national shortage of racial and ethnic minorities in education professions and the proportion of high school students interested in pursuing an education major or career path continues to decline rapidly (NCES, 2015).

  • Nationwide, students of color have become the majority in public schools, yet more than 80% of teachers are white (Rich, 2015).Black, white, and Asian students benefit from being assigned to a teacher that looks like them.

  • Test scores go up in years when their teacher shares their ethnicity (Egalite, Kisida, & Winters, 2015).

Program At a Glance

Students are encouraged to explore teaching as a mission. A teacher functions as a vital change agent, not only for educational justice but to also improve schools and local communities. The UMETT program also helps students gain the experiences necessary to succeed their first year in college through fostering a sense of belonging, resilience, and self-efficacy, and connecting them with helpful resources. Day-to-day, students: 

  • After breakfast, student participants spend the morning at interactive sessions dedicated to teaching as a mission, including field experience at local schools towards the end of the week.

  • Afternoons are spent learning about college, the UNI campus, and feature speakers talking about their various pathways to college.

  • After dinner, students participate in team- building activities and have free time in the residence halls.
