UNI has a bold vision that we will be a diverse and inclusive campus community that provides an engaged education empowering students to lead locally and globally. We seek faculty across disciplines, departments, and colleges to work together to build our national prominence in any of four distinct but interrelated areas of our vision and strategic plan: engaged learning, diversity and inclusion, sustainability, and community engagement.

The University’s attractive size, approximately 12,000 students, allows UNI to offer faculty, facilities, and academic choices characteristic of a much larger university while retaining a friendly, small-college atmosphere on a park-like campus. UNI has been recognized for the past twenty years as one of the "Best Midwest Universities" by U.S. News & World Report. Located in Cedar Falls/Waterloo, the campus comprises more than 40 buildings on 940 acres.
