UNI Named Best Public College in Iowa for Getting a Job

If there is one thing that the Cedar Valley prides itself on, it’s the focus on high-quality education and career development for those who live here or choose to learn here. From the career skill training facilities within the Center for Advanced Professional Studies (CAPS), the Waterloo Career Center, or Leader Valley, equipping Pre-K-12 students for life by providing them with the essential soft skills needed for a life of effectiveness and a competitive advantage in the workforce.

The next level of the education that we are proud of in the Cedar Valley is our post-secondary education institutions and opportunities in the Cedar Valley for those who call the Cedar Valley home. The University of Northern Iowa (UNI) is a public university in the Cedar Valley. UNI offers more than 90 majors across the colleges of Business Administration, Education, Humanities, Arts, and Sciences, Social and Behavioral Sciences, and graduate college.

From Zippia.com, “Using the Department of Education College Scorecard data, we searched for the public college in each state with the highest listed job placement numbers ten years after graduation. We then sorted every college in the country from the highest employment levels to the lowest.

Any college that did not have this data or suppressed it was excluded from the running. We opted to focus on the best colleges to graduate with your bachelor’s degree. To do this we only looked at colleges that predominantly offer four-year degrees, excluding some excellent two-year colleges. We then selected the college with the highest rate of employment in each state, rounding to the second decimal point for readability.”

We also are blessed to have several other high-quality colleges, institutions, and programs to connect you with the skills you need to find opportunities in the Cedar Valley.
