    One of a kind

    At the heart of this university community are faculty and staff doing excellent work every day to contribute to an Iowa State student experience that is purposeful, rich with options, inspired -- and fun. We'll profile some of them on this page, organized every few months around a topic or theme.

    This winter, we're recognizing five professional staff whose assignments are a bit unique, whose responsibilities are mostly unreplicated -- even on a large, land-grant campus. What they share is their zest for a good challenge and dedication to their units.

    Peer recognition

    This set, from September 2023, recognizes the 2023 recipients of university awards, the highest recognition Iowa State bestows upon its faculty and staff for their commitment to the land-grant ideals of learning, discovery and outreach. Their peers nominated them for their accomplishments. All 62 recipients are highlighted, with five featured for work that responds to the aspirational goals in Iowa State's 2022-31 strategic plan.
