The Hawkeye Accessibility Ambassador program really transforms the lives of those involved. Once a shy first year student, I soon developed strong leadership as well as communication skills that would help me graduate college and get a job at the University of Iowa. The HAA experience has really transformed me into the professional individual I am today. - Josh Hannan, HAA Alumni, Supply Chain Associate - UI Purchasing Department
The UCS made several changes to our physical environment as a result of what we thought was a very thorough and very thoughtful process. Many of the changes had ease to them in terms of costs and process. Highly recommend this! - Barry Schreier, Ph.D., Director of University Counseling Service
