You Are Welcome Here
We value a respectful, safe, and inclusive environment for all individuals. We respect and celebrate the unique attributes, characteristics, and perspectives that make each person who they are because diversity strengthens our Iowa State community.
For students within the College of Human Sciences, our Multicultural Student Success Programs offer numerous student support services as well as ways to connect with each other. Our Connect Four Learning Community is a community of first-year and transfer students of color to gather, build community, connect with campus resources and with our college’s faculty and staff. There’s even an option to live on the same residence hall floor!
