In the Spotlight - University Of Northern Iowa Center For Urban
UNI-CUE's mission is to provide a positive environment for lifetime learning where individuals may pursue and continue their educational goals and prepare for careers.
The University of Northern Iowa Center for Urban Education (UNI-CUE), located in downtown Waterloo, provides outreach to the community. The UNI-CUE supports a number of programs to assist area residents and university students in pursuing and continuing their educational goals and prepare for careers. These programs and services include three federally-funded TRiO programs - the Educational Opportunity Center, the Educational Talent Search Program, and the Classic Upward Bound Program, and UNI-CUE's Tutoring Center.
The UNI-CUE is looking for university students to tutor K-12 students one-on-one for a period of 1-1/2 hours each week during the spring and fall semesters on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday evening from 4:00 – 5:30 p.m., 4:30 – 6:00 p.m., or 5:00 – 6:30 p.m. Due to early school dismissal an early session is held on Wednesday from 3:30 – 5:00 p.m.
The UNI-CUE Tutoring Center was established in 2010 as an outreach program serving Black Hawk County students in grades K-12. The learning environment at the Tutoring Center is success oriented and offers opportunities for learners to succeed academically, increase their self-esteem, and become more productive citizens within their community.
