Cherry Hill's Kelly Stankiewicz among nearly 2,000 students to graduate last fall from the University of Iowa

IOWA CITY, IA (01/19/2023)-- Kelly Stankiewicz of Cherry Hill, NJ was among the nearly 2,000 undergraduate, graduate and professional students conferred their degrees last month at the University of Iowa.

Stankiewicz was a student in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences whose program of study was Health and Human Physiology. The degree awarded was a Bachelor of Arts.

Stankiewicz and fellow graduates engaged, excelled, and stretched to reach their goals-often overcoming the obstacles created by a pandemic.

One doctoral candidate, for example, has made great research advances in her exploration of sudden unexpected death in epilepsy. A biomedical engineering student continues to work to make the world a better place for heart disease patients and for those in immigration limbo. And a student in communication sciences and disorders helped build from the ground up a free assistive technology consultation program for Iowa families of children with reading disabilities.

Year after year, Iowa students have pushed to achieve more and to come together for the greater good -- that's the Hawkeye Way. As the fall 2022 cohort of new graduates enters the next stage of their lives, they leave the Iowa campus full of potential and promise.

Eleven percent of the undergraduates graduated with multiple degrees and, as a group, undergraduates posted a 3.17 cumulative grade point average during their stay at Iowa.
