The University of Iowa was established on February 25, 1847, exactly 59 days after Iowa’s inclusion in the Union. The Constitution of the State of Iowa instigated the establishment of a state university that will not have any branch at any other place. While the legal name of the university is the State University of Iowa, its Board of Regents approved the use of the University of Iowa for common, daily usage starting October 1964.
Since its establishment, the university has been garnering international recognition because of its achievements in the fields of arts, humanities, and sciences. It is also the first US public university to admit male and female students in an equal capacity. The University of Iowa is also the first university to accept creative work in music, art, writing, and theater as theses. It is also the first to have a law school west of Mississippi, as well as the first institution to build an educational radio station. The world’s first educational TV program was also broadcasted from the University of Iowa’s engineering building.
Furthermore, the University of Iowa also contributed world-leading research and innovations in the fields of genetics, engineering, and sciences. Its graduate programs in Nursing Service Administration, Speech-Language Pathology, Audiology, Creative Writing, and Printmaking are among the highest-ranked in the country and globally. It has also produced multiple scientists who have pioneered space research, including renowned American space scientist James Van Allen.
