Student Development and Engagement 

In recognizing the uniqueness of each student, we support their overall growth and development through leadership and involvement opportunities, rich and meaningful co-curricular activities, and global engagement experiences. We also work to remain accessible and responsive to students, and to minimize barriers that inhibit effective learning.

Connection, Collaboration, and Communication

We strive to share our successes and outcomes with the community, ensuring transparency and inviting discussion about where we can enhance our work. Further, we desire to instill a global mindset in all Cyclones to enhance their cultural awareness and intercultural competence.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We seek to welcome and engage all Cyclones in an effort to create a respectful, responsible community that allows for equitable access to learning and involvement.

Holistic Health, Wellness and Safety of Students & Staff

Cyclones should feel safe anywhere at Iowa State University. Our programs, services, and interactions are designed to embody this and to identify areas where continued work needs to occur. We function best when everyone aspires to their best physical, emotional, intellectual, financial, environmental, occupational, social, and spiritual wellbeing.
