It is most evident this nation is a forever changing one. Maintaining culturally diverse college campuses not only encourages all students to work as one, but it’s also an investment in stronger workforce. The more diversity we see at our colleges and universities equates to a more diverse future workforce.




Last week 21 high school students from Pakistan and 3 high school counsellors took part in a Career Pathway Camp here at UNI through a partnership between UNI’s Office of Admissions and EducationUSA.


EducationUSA is a U.S. Department of State network of over 400 international student advising centers in more than 170 countries. The network promotes U.S. higher education to students around the world by offering accurate, comprehensive, and current information about opportunities to study at accredited postsecondary institutions in the United States.


The students came here with the goal of exploring and discovering if they had any interest in studying a particular subject when it came time for their own college journeys. While at UNI the students collaborated on various team exercises while learning about entrepreneurship as a career choice from the John Pappajohn Entrepreneurial Center’s staff.


These students will be visiting a total of 10 universities and/or colleges in the Midwest to learn about different areas of study and career choices.
