Andrea Wheeler, associate professor of architecture, has been elected president-elect of the Iowa State University Faculty Senate for 2020–2021. She will serve as Faculty Senate president in 2021–2022, succeeding Carol Faber, associate professor of graphic design.

Wheeler has served on the senate’s Academic Affairs Council for the past three years and chaired it for two. In this role she also serves on the Senate Executive Board. She has been a member of the Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee for three years, and participated in a working group that brought forward a successful resolution on climate change.

The learning community was established following senators’ conversations about campus climate at Iowa State.
