The Division of Interdisciplinary Programs (DIP) provides an institutional and intellectual space which facilitates faculty and student collaboration across disciplines within the College and with other University of Iowa colleges, units, and programs. The innovative programs within the Division offer experiential learning opportunities that allow students to actively apply knowledge gained in the classroom to local, regional, national and international real-world settings. From Global Health Studies to Latina/x/o Studies, DIP Programs prepare students for life and careers in the 21st century by providing opportunities for critical engagement with the liberal arts.  Students develop skills required to become effective communicators and creative problem-solvers, as well as the desire to contribute to positive social change in the diverse local and global communities.
