About the institution

The Belin-Blank Cen­ter for Gift­ed Edu­ca­tion and Tal­ent Devel­op­ment is part of the Uni­ver­si­ty of Iowa’s Col­lege of Edu­ca­tion. Since 1988, the com­pre­hen­sive cen­ter has been nur­tur­ing poten­tial and inspir­ing excel­lence in gift­ed edu­ca­tion. The center’s mis­sion is to empow­er and serve the inter­na­tion­al gift­ed com­mu­ni­ty through exem­plary lead­er­ship in pro­grams, research, and advo­ca­cy. The Belin-Blank Cen­ter col­lab­o­rates with the world­wide gift­ed com­mu­ni­ty to offer a wide range of inno­v­a­tive pro­gram­ming and ser­vices for gift­ed stu­dents. Some of these ser­vices include iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of gift­ed and tal­ent­ed learn­ers, assess­ments and coun­sel­ing, and spe­cial edu­ca­tion­al oppor­tu­ni­ties, resources, and curriculum.
