​​​​​A strong, long-standing partnership has existed between UNI and DMACC for more than 25 years. It began with the 2+2 Elementary Education BA​ program, when the two institutions came together to provide a pathway for placebound students to earn education degrees and begin teaching in Iowa. Since 1995, more than 300 teachers have graduated from the program.

Today, UNI and DMACC have expanded the partnership to offer additional online degree completion programs at four campuses through the UNI@DMACC partnership.
