IOWA CITY, Iowa – Approximately 200 student-athletes and staff from a variety of the University of Iowa’s athletic teams will take part in the 24th annual ISAAC Hawkeye Day of Caring on Sunday, April 24.
Hawkeye Day of Caring is coordinated by the Iowa Student Athlete Advisory Committee (ISAAC) and supported by MidAmerican Energy. The goal is to increase the level of community service among UI teams and student-athletes.
Community engagement is one pillar in the Student-Athlete Academic Services Hawkeye Life Program, an all-encompassing life skills and leadership development model which seeks to enhance the UI student-athlete experience. The goal is to encourage student-athletes to get involved, to be good citizens, and to take an active role in their personal and professional development. The Iowa Athletics Department thanks MidAmerican Energy for its endowment of the community engagement pillar.
