University setting

University Counseling Service (UCS) is an integral part of the Division of Student Life at the University of Iowa. With approximately 33,000 students, including graduates, undergraduates, and professional students, the University is a nationally and internationally recognized academic and research institution. Important resources to the UCS internship program are the APA-accredited Counseling Psychology program on campus and the close availability of the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics (UIHC). The nearby Student Health, with psychiatric services, also provides an important resource.

The University of Iowa was the first public university in the nation to admit men and women on an equal basis and the first U.S. institution of higher education to accept creative work for advanced degrees in the arts. It had the first law school west of the Mississippi and broadcast the world's first educational television programs.
