University Non-discrimination Statement

"Iowa State University does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, age, ethnicity, religion, national origin, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information, sex, marital status, disability, or status as a U.S. veteran. Inquiries  regarding non-discrimination policies may be directed to Robinette Kelley, Director, Office of Equal Opportunity, Title IX /ADA Coordinator, and Affirmative Action Officer, 3350 Beardshear Hall, Ames, Iowa 50011, Tel. 515 294-7612, email eooffice@iastate.edu."


We proactively address fair and equal treatment of current and potential students, staff, and faculty by monitoring compliance with federal, state, and University guidelines.

We will accomplish this by:

  • 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.
  • Promoting Iowa State as an employer and university of choice by encouraging innovative recruiting methods and integrating into our local and global communities.
  • Gathering and interpreting data to facilitate understanding of our Affirmative Action responsibilities in accordance with Federal government and University policies.
