Abstract

Name a woman of color who graduated and led change at Iowa State. What did they do? How did they impact an Iowa State that promoted the mission to create, share, and apply knowledge to make Iowa and the world a better place? In 1931, the first African American Woman graduated Iowa State University with a Masters degree in Home Economics Education. However, her story and the stories of so many other women of color have been forgotten. Iowa State University, as an institution has celebrated both women, and people of color, but have rarely publicly celebrated the accomplishments of women of color. This session will not only detail the accomplishments of women of color at Iowa State to identify and celebrate their achievements, but will also encourage Iowa State University to recognize their achievements.
