Message from the AD

Dear Panther Family,

Thank you for your investment in UNI Athletics. Your gifts to the Panther Scholarship Club (PSC) and other areas of the Athletics Department are critical to supporting the needs of our student-athletes, coaches and staff.

We are excited about our new website which will allow us to be more creative with our fundraising efforts but also give our donors a more inside look at what we can accomplish with their investments. Last summer, the PSC shared with you a few changes that are being implemented to meet the continued financial needs for our athletics programs. will be your guide for future news on the PSC and other fundraising projects.

Generations of generous donors have helped make UNI and the Panthers a familiar name across the country. As UNI moves forward, the continued support of alumni, parents, and friends will allow UNI to build champions, both in the classroom and on the playing surfaces. Please continue to invest in our success!
