Mary Ann Bolton, class of 1970, never forgot the positive impact of her experience at UNI. After a long and impactful career in librarianship and many endeavors into supporting libraries, she looked back to her academic roots to explore a way to give back. In 2017, she worked with the library to establish an endowment with a specific interest in using her gift to support and recognize undergraduate students’ research projects.
On August 25th, 2022, people tuned into a dynamic virtual lecture about the history of Iowa’s Chinese immigration for the State Historical Society of Iowa’s online learning series. The speaker was UNI alum, Dr. Anthony Miller.
