What is happening at Iowa State University 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?

Welcome to Inclusion@IowaState, where you will find your 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. 

Inclusion@IowaState will be developed over time and with the input of interested partners who volunteer their talents to the project.
