Inclusive By Design Working Session
Faculty and staff are encouraged to attend an Inclusive by Design discussion and working session with students from 5:30–7 pm. this Wednesday, Nov. 13, in the Hansen Exchange (upper-level center space in the King Pavilion). Together we will wrestle with the recent incidents of racism, cultural insensitivity and hate speech within the college and university and work to define strategies that will bring healing and help us build a more inclusive community. It is vital that we come together to support our students and work with them to create lasting change. Please join us in this important conversation.

The show will feature 167 prints by artists from 19 states and six other countries. All prints on display will be available for sale in a silent auction; the bidding process will be described in the gallery.

Bidding will end at 5 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 21, and winning bidders may pay for and pick up their prints at the closing reception at 5 p.m. in the gallery. In conjunction with "Rise," the print club will also host "Wish You Were Here: 19 years of Postcards, A Retrospective," featuring prints submitted to the postcard print exchange collection over the past 19 years.
College & University Award Nominations
The deadline to submit nominations for college and university awards is 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 22. The College of Design annually presents a number of awards for advising, research/scholarship, teaching, outreach/service and extraordinary performance to faculty, staff and students (both undergraduate and graduate). More information and nomination forms may be found online.
A number of prestigious awards for faculty, staff, students and alumni also are presented by Iowa State each year. Calls for nominations come from various units, such as the Provost's Office, university P&S Council and Alumni Association. While many of these university award nominations are open to all, the college asks that you submit your nominations for faculty and staff awards to 146 Design by 5 p.m. Nov. 22 so the Faculty Development Council and college P&S Council can review and rank nominations prior to submission to the university.
Reminder: Lectures & Exhibitions Proposals Due Friday
The Lectures and Exhibitions Committee has updated the online submission form and issued a new call for proposals for the "Educate/Innovate(?)"-themed events. Those who previously submitted proposals are encouraged to revise and resubmit. The committee also will accept new proposals. Please note that you need to clearly state what the proposed event entails and how it relates to the theme as well as provide a detailed budget indicating how much funding has been committed by different departments/groups along with itemized costs for travel, accommodations, meals, materials, etc. Proposals are due by 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 15. Contact committee chair Mira Engler or your departmental representative with any questions.
