In alignment with President Wintersteen's focus on making Iowa State a national leader in creating a welcoming and inclusive campus environment, our aim is to promote critical thinking; responsible management of people; professional skills development; innovation in research, teaching and learning; and the constructive expression of divergent viewpoints.

Our efforts to establish positive internal and external relationships with individuals, businesses, community based organizations and governmental agencies are in support of the mission of Iowa State University. As the land-grant institution in the first state to adopt the Morrill Act, Iowa State University wholeheartedly supports the mission of sharing knowledge beyond the campus borders and our efforts within the division are aimed at enhancing the living, working, and learning experiences from central campus throughout Central Iowa and beyond.

Welcome to Inclusion at Iowa State, where you will find answers to that question, learn more about the efforts made by ISU community members to realize Goal 4 of the university's strategic plan, and develop your own understanding of what Iowa State values in the areas of diversity, inclusion, equity, and justice.
