Our Vision

Equal Opportunity and Compliance cultivates a more inclusive, global community by encouraging students, staff, and faculty to engage one another in creative and respectful interactions.

Our Mission

We proactively champion fair and equal treatment of current and potential students, staff, and faculty by monitoring compliance with Federal, State, and University guidelines.

We will accomplish our vision and mission by:

  • Gathering and interpreting data to facilitate understanding of our Affirmative Action responsibilities in accordance with Federal government and University policies.
  • Promoting Iowa State as an employer and university of choice by engaging in innovative recruiting methods and integrating into our local and global communities.
  • Administering the Discrimination and Harassment policy to address actions, limit allegations, educate students, faculty, and staff on preventative measures, and raise awareness of potential acts.
  • Advancing the understanding and knowledge of the unique differences displayed throughout our campus and community by engaging in spirited dialogue and providing education opportunities.
