2nd Annual Theme Semester: "Just Living"

The University of Iowa is excited to begin its second annual Theme Semester "Just Living". This semester's focus will be on social justice and will allow for discussion and reflection on many related topics, including race, identity, environmental justice, educational access, housing and health disparities, and much more. The University of Iowa's academic mission is deeply connected to social justice, and we should be incorporating this topic in our coursework and units during the semester and beyond. The Theme Semester program aims to bring our academics, campus, and Iowa communities together in a conversation of importance by providing opportunities and resources related to the theme.

Please join us as we commence the semester on Thursday, January 28 at the Old Capitol Museum Keyes Gallery for the opening reception of "THEM: Images of Separation". I encourage you to learn more about the planned activities, events, and opportunities that are available during the Just Living Theme Semester at
