Jump Start Academy

Jump Start Academy serves as continuation of the Jump Start program and is designed to provide direct support and connection to campus resources for Jump Start students as they transition through their first year at UNI. The Academy is made up of a leadership team of students who have participated in Jump Start or have worked closely with the program.

The Academy fosters academic, financial, and personal development and deepens commitment to scholarship and success. This is achieved through engagement and collaboration with BIPOC faculty, staff, alumni, peers, and community members and a series of academic, financial and community engagement activities where students will acquire the necessary skill sets and supports that will help students envision and attain success post-graduation.
