The University and College Awards program honors outstanding faculty and staff each year who have demonstrated their commitment to the land-grant ideals of learning, discovery and engagement. These awards represent the highest recognition that Iowa State bestows upon its faculty and staff for their accomplishments.
Although some university awards allow for direct nomination, most nominations route through the academic colleges (see the individual descriptions). Nominees for LAS awards must be LAS faculty or staff members. Past recipients are not eligible to receive the same LAS award again.
