"The Celebrating Cultural Diversity Festival is one of the most important annual events on our campus. As The University of Iowa faces its current challenges, it is important that we remember and celebrate our strengths and our values.
Celebrating Cultural Diversity Festival is an annual event that celebrates the different cultures that make up the University of Iowa and its surrounding communities. This year CCDF is celebrating its 24th year of educating the community while honoring the many cultures in the area.
