    BRALEY of iowa in the house of representatives Monday, February 25, 2013 Mr. BRALEY of Iowa. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to congratulate my friend Ben Allen on his retirement as the President of the University of Northern Iowa. On May 31st, President Allen will be retiring after six and a half years of service to the University of Northern Iowa (UNI).

    Ben Allen was named the ninth President of UNI on April 28, 2006. Prior to serving at UNI, [[Page E182]] President Allen served as Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost at Iowa State University. President Allen has been a hardworking leader for UNI and the Cedar Valley community. Under President Allen's leadership, UNI has established priorities for increasing student achievement in undergraduate performance, and providing statewide leadership in Pre-K through 12 education.

    Ben Allen led UNI through exciting and challenging times. I have always respected Ben's love for the University and his contributions to higher education at both UNI and Iowa State. I'm proud to call Ben my friend and I wish Ben and his wife Pat all the best in their future plans and endeavors.
