The Dare to Discover banners may be down from the lightpoles around downtown Iowa City, but they're not gone. 

The banners, which feature University of Iowa faculty and staff engaged in some aspect of research and scholarship, are now hanging inside of the University Capitol Centre (UCC), Old Capitol Town Center, at 201 S. Clinton St. Several also hang on windows in the Office of the Vice President for Research and Economic Development (OPVR&ED) on the second floor of UCC. 

OVPR&ED launched the campaign in January 2016 as a way to showcase researchers, scholars, and creators from across the UI.

A companion website,, provides more background about the stories behind the faces of discovery and creativity.
