Nominations for 2024 Women Impacting ISU calendar due Sept. 24

CATEGORIES: September 2023, Voices

Nominations are being accepted for the 2024 Women Impacting ISU calendar through the end of the day on Sunday, Sept. 24.

The Women Impacting ISU calendar was developed as a tribute to current students, faculty and staff who have made a significant positive impact on campus through their actions, involvement and achievements at Iowa State University.

The calendar is open to all individuals who identify their gender as “woman,” inclusive of cisgender, transgender and non-binary identities. Faculty and staff must be employed by Iowa State University for the 2024 calendar year to be eligible for nomination. Students graduating in May 2024 may be nominated.

Selections are made by a committee composed of previous honorees, students affiliated with the Catt Center, and staff and faculty members from across campus. When reviewing the nominations, the committee considers the nominees’ achievements in academics, 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.

Instructions for nominating someone and a link to the nomination form are available on the Catt Center website. You do not need to be employed by Iowa State or be an Iowa State student to submit a nomination. Completed nominations must be received by Sunday, Sept. 24 at 11:59 p.m. Please note that the deadline is on a Sunday this year, a change from past years!

If you are interested in serving on the 2024 selection committee, please email the Catt Center at In the fall, potential committee members will be contacted about their availability to attend two virtual review meetings in October. Please note that if you nominate someone for the 2024 calendar, you will not be able to serve on the selection committee this year.

If you have questions about the calendar nomination or selection process, you can check the frequently asked questions on the Catt Center’s website or contact Sue Cloud at or (515) 294-9867.

Publication of the calendar is coordinated by the Catt Center, with funding provided by the Office of the Vice President for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.
