At Iowa State University, different mindsets and backgrounds are crucial to success. That’s why the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering hosts Electrical, Computer, and Software Engineers as Leaders (ECSEL), a program working to improve diversity and inclusion in electrical, computer and software engineering programs and in the workforce. ECSEL focuses on the representation and … Continue reading ECSEL: Leading diversity and inclusion in ECpE
Today, women teaching at Iowa State University (ISU) probably don’t worry about finding a place to live near campus. Students, faculty and alums may be surprised to find that, prior to 1922, both female students and faculty members sometimes struggled to find housing.
FundISU is a new way for Cyclone Engineering alumni and friends to support the innovative work and research being done at Iowa State University. Nearly four years ago the Iowa State University Foundation implemented FundISU – a crowdfunding platform helps Iowa State University community members raise money to support projects that advance innovation, teaching and learning at the university and promote Iowa State’s mission to create, share, and apply knowledge to make Iowa and the world a better place.
Michelle Soupir, an associate professor of agricultural and biosystems engineering, was named equity advisor for the College of Engineering. She will support the recruitment and advancement of women and faculty of color, and disseminate information and best practices to engineering departments. Soupir will also be engaged with ADVANCE activities at the university and college levels.
