BTN LiveBIG: Best of … Iowa

The University of Iowa is a groundbreaking institution. In 1855 — before the American Civil War — it enacted a policy of admitting male and female students on an equal basis, the first public university in the United States to do so.

And this university is still a positive force for change, in many cases well beyond Iowa City. From its first-class creative writing program to its international engineering efforts, the Hawkeyes are affecting the world in many powerful ways.

Here are a few of our favorite LiveBIG stories that show how Iowa enables education, innovation and altruism:
