Iowa State University is proud to educate and employ a diverse community. The Division of Diversity and Inclusion supports students, faculty, staff, alumni and community constituents to build a model of equity and inclusion that impacts every aspect of campus life and gives voice to all members of the university community.
We engage with campus partners to promote a climate of diversity, equity, and inclusion that will help Iowa State University become the most welcoming land-grant institution in the nation.
We collaborate to create opportunities for participation and development through Campus Conversations, Know Your Rights, Lazos, and the Engagement and Inclusion Officers Program.
Efforts to enhance and cultivate the ISU Experience where faculty, staff, students, and visitors are safe and feel welcomed, supported, included, and valued by the university and each other.
We work with the local community to create projects like the City of Ames Advisory Board, the Ames Community Institute, and the Symposium on Building Inclusive Organizations.
