Support Groups through UCS

University Counseling Service offers many support group for students across campus. A support group can be a space for student with marginalized identities to meet people with similar experiences, form connections and receive emotional support. Students may drop in whenever they want to and with any intervention students who attend support groups regularly tend to benefit more.

Goals of support groups include, talking openly about personal feelings and thoughts, developing a sense of connection and belonging, reduce feelings of loneliness, isolation and stress, improve skills to cope with stress, and process collective trauma related to shared identities. For more information on support groups offered this spring click here.

Success, Not Excess Support Group

Success, Not Excess provides a safe and supportive space for UI students wanting to make or considering changes in their alcohol or other drug use. The group emphasizes success in academics, relationships, mental and physical health, and other goals through abstaining or reducing alcohol and other drug use. The group operates from a “no pressure” approach by encouraging discussion of shared experiences and achieving success on campus by removing the barriers created by substance use.

Location: IMU room 214

Tippie Top 21 Nominations OPEN NOW

Twenty-one student leaders
The Tippie Top 21 award recognizes 21 of the college’s outstanding student leaders. These students are young people who have excelled in the areas of scholarship, leadership, experiential learning, and advancing diversity, inclusion, and global engagement.

Why Re-Branding?
We encourage our students to propel themselves into the college experience by getting involved within Tippie and beyond. That being said, credit should be given where credit is due. Tippie’s Top 21 gives well-deserved recognition to outstanding leaders who begin their college journeys from many different backgrounds. Moving forward, we hope to re-brand this award in order to be more inclusive of the undergraduate student population who come from all these backgrounds.

Whether it is through stellar academics or impressive initiative, our faculty and staff know that students can impact the Tippie community in countless ways. It is important to us to acknowledge these impacts and highlight the students who make them.
