Autism Speaks U is a program that supports students, faculty and alumni in their awareness and fundraising efforts for Autism Speaks, an national organization dedicated to promoting solutions, across the spectrum and throughout the life span, for the needs of individuals with autism and their families. The Autism Speaks chapter at Iowa State University facilities fundraisers and other inclusive events that raise awareness about individuals with autism. Though the primary goal of our organization is to raise awareness for individuals with autism located here at Iowa State University, we also maintain support for all individuals who have been impacted by autism in an indirect capacity through family or peers. Our goal is to facilitate meetings or fundraisers at least twice a semester with the potential of hosting more events as our club continues to grow.
