  • New accessibility syllabus statement
  • August 12, 2019

    The university has developed an updated syllabus statement that needs to be included in all course syllabi. Prior versions or variations thereof should no longer be used. Faculty are asked to incorporate the following statement (which has also been provided in an email from Steven Moats, director of Student Accessibility Services) into their syllabi:

    Iowa State University is committed to assuring that all educational activities are free from discrimination and harassment based on disability status. Students requesting accommodations for a documented disability are required to work directly with staff in Student Accessibility Services (SAS) to establish eligibility and learn about related processes before accommodations will be identified. After eligibility is established, SAS staff will create and issue a Notification Letter for each course listing approved reasonable accommodations. This document will be made available to the student and instructor either electronically or in hard-copy every semester. Students and instructors are encouraged to review contents of the Notification Letters as early in the semester as possible to identify a specific, timely plan to deliver/receive the indicated accommodations. Reasonable accommodations are not retroactive in nature and are not intended to be an unfair advantage. Additional information or assistance is available online at www.sas.dso.iastate.edu, by contacting SAS staff by email at accessibility@iastate.edu, or by calling 515-294-7220. Student Accessibility Services is a unit in the Dean of Students Office located at 1076 Student Services Building.

  • Faculty invited to join new water resources learning community
  • August 12, 2019

    Water touches all disciplines, requiring many perspectives to solve complex water resource management problems and making it a top priority for many interdisciplinary research opportunities. The Iowa Water Center invites faculty from the arts and sciences at Iowa State University to join the Water Scholars Faculty Learning Community for the 2019-2020 academic year. Faculty will be assigned to small, subject-diverse groups that will meet once a month for professional development and group-work exercises to explore each other’s disciplines.

    Learning community topics include science communication to the public and policymakers; building competitive, diverse research teams; grant writing; and arts and the environment. Up to 40 ISU faculty will be selected to join the faculty learning community. Submit a statement of interest online by 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 16. Questions? Contact program coordinator Hanna Bates.

    This project is made possible by support from the CEAH-OVPR New Explorations grant to support faculty research on campus.

  • Joyce J. Scott Artist Lecture
  • 01:30 pm

    The Des Moines Art Center will host a free lecture by artist Joyce J. Scott at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 25. A free brunch will be offered prior to the lecture; brunch guests will receive the best parking and reserved seating for the lecture. Reservations for both are available online.

    My Best Voice is as an Artist

    “They say, talk about what you know… that’s why I use myself and my career as a visual/performance artist as my platform. Being born in the 1940s and now living in the first quarter of the 21st century as an African American woman, I have a lot to say about what I’ve experienced. It all converges in my artwork. My joys and challenges, fears and evolution blend. Many feel artists live only for their work. However I, like many, use my practice to express my citizenship and commitment to change by speaking through it, of our social and political existence. My work’s beauty is a lure. I hone my skills because I believe in my craftsmanship and the message it can deliver through its excellence.”

    — Joyce J. Scott
