Thanks to their dedicated work, our research institution has earned a global
reputation in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), agriculture
and life sciences, and biorenewables. We’re also harnessing this prowess to solve
the vital challenges of Destination 2050 — a crucial project focused on feeding,
fueling and protecting the world of tomorrow.
We were the fi rst land-grant university, and we’ve never strayed from our
original mission. We fi rmly believe in higher education open to all without regard to
gender, social class, or cultural heritage; providing a practical education to better
prepare our graduates for success; and in sharing knowledge and breakthroughs
to improve the lives in our surrounding communities. The record shows that Iowa
State graduates become early leaders in business, industry, education and service
Iowa State has eight colleges: Agriculture and Life Sciences, Business, Design,
Engineering, Human Sciences, Liberal Arts and Sciences, Veterinary Medicine,
and the Graduate College. With offi ces in all 99 Iowa counties, ISU Extension and

one million residents, serving rural areas, small communities and urban areas.
More than 1,200 staff and faculty partner with county extension councils and
volunteers to provide programs in agriculture and natural resources, community
and economic development, human sciences, and 4-H youth development.
Our 1,900-acre campus is recognized as one of the most beautiful in the country.
Buzzfeed identifi ed Iowa State as one of the fi ve most beautiful campuses in the
world, and the host community of Ames is ranked among the Best Places to Live
by Livability.com and Money Magazine. Livability.com also selected Ames as No.
1 on its list of Best College Towns. With a population of 63,000, Ames is located
in the center of Iowa, just 30 minutes north of Des Moines, the state capital and
largest population and business center.
So what makes Iowa State University different? We’ve created a culture
that allows students, professors and researchers to stand out, challenge what
is possible, discover new truths, and change the world for the better. It’s why
we’ve become home to some of the most successful adventurous minds of this
generation — and the next.
