With nearly 37,000 students and more than 6,000 faculty and staff, Iowa State University is proud to educate and employ a diverse community. The Division of Diversity and Inclusion supports a broad range of students, faculty, staff, alumni and community constituents to build a model of inclusion that impacts every aspect of campus life and gives voice to all members of the university community.

Our aim is to promote critical thinking, the 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 very 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.
