Activities Center Learning Laboratory

You are here

In 2016, the University of Iowa began operating the Iowa Center for Higher Education, located on the campus that was formerly AIB College of Business. Through an innovate and unique arrangement, the Sport & Recreation Management program operates the Activities Center on campus as a student learning laboratory. As an academic institution committed to furthering learning opportunities, this venture allows meaningful learning and development opportunities for students on campus. Students, faculty and staff all seek to provide the highest level of customer service and top flight facilities to meet your needs as an organization.
