Become a United Nations College Ambassador!

The Iowa United Nations Association is proud to offer students at colleges and universities throughout Iowa the opportunity to join their advocacy efforts in support of the United Nations work on human rights, global health, sustainable development, gender equity, and climate action. The Iowa UNA will offer up to 20 students the opportunity to serve as College Ambassadors. Selected students will each receive $500 as a stipend. During this 8-month program, ambassadors will work with the Debra DeLaet, Executive Director of the Iowa UNA, and other volunteer leaders to amplify our advocacy messages on their home campuses and through their social media networks.

International Women’s Day: Now more than ever

Every year, for decades now, the Iowa United Nations Association has held Night of 1,000 Dinners in honor of International Women’s Day. Over these decades, the role that we have played in Iowa City as proponents of international cooperation has shifted. It used to be that our role was to connect Iowans to an international community that seemed so far away and hard to reach. Now, the world has brought the international playing field to our doorstep. International cooperation is our goal not only abroad (“out there”), but also here, here in our state, here in our city, here in our schools.
