Nominations for the 2022 Women Impacting ISU calendar are being accepted through Friday, Sept. 24, until 11:59 p.m.
The annual calendar, which was first published in 2007, highlights the accomplishments and achievements of 12 women currently on the Iowa State campus as students, faculty, professional and scientific staff, or merit staff.
The calendar is open to all individuals who identify as a woman, inclusive of cisgender and transgender identities. Faculty and staff must be employed by Iowa State University for the 2022 calendar year to be eligible for nomination. Students graduating in May 2022 may be nominated.
Instructions on how to nominate someone and a link to the online nomination form are available on the Catt Center’s website. You do not need to be employed by Iowa State or be an Iowa State student to submit a nomination.
Selections are made by a committee composed of previous honorees, past nominators, students affiliated with the Catt Center, and staff and faculty members from across campus. When reviewing the nominations, the selection committee considers the nominees’ achievements in administration, teaching, research and/or service – depending on each nominee’s role at Iowa State – as well as their involvement in campus activities and mentoring.
Funding for the calendar is provided by Iowa State’s Office of the Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion. Catt Center staff and student interns publicize and collect the nominations; organize and facilitate the review committee meeting; plan the recognition reception in January of each year; and design, order and distribute the calendars.
