Women Impacting ISU Calendar

Initiated in 2007 by the Catt Associates student leadership organization and funded by Iowa State’s Office of the Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion, the Women Impacting ISU calendar was developed as a tribute to current students, faculty and staff who distinguished themselves through their accomplishments at Iowa State University. More on the origin of the calendar…

Each year, 12 women from a variety of disciplines and diverse backgrounds are selected to appear on the calendar. A committee of representatives from Catt Center student programs, previous calendar honorees and members of the ISU community review the nominations and select the honorees. The poster-sized calendar features pictures of the honorees along with a short description of their achievements. This recognition is focused on the important role women play at Iowa State University. Honorees have impacted Iowa State through service to their unit or a broader campus audience, in the classroom or through community relationships, and inspire women of all generations.

A reception and calendar unveiling is held each January to publicly honor the women featured on that year’s calendar. Free calendars are available at the end of reception.

Please note: Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, you can watch a virtual unveiling of the 2021 calendar on the Catt Center’s YouTube channel. Calendars are available for pickup at the Catt Center (309 Catt Hall), LAS Student Services (102 Catt Hall), the Greenlee School (101 Hamilton), Beardshear Hall, Jacobson Athletic Building, and several locations in the Memorial Union. If you would like calendars for distribution at your campus office, contact the Catt Center at 515-294-3181 or cattcntr@iastate.edu.
