Mission & Vision
The Margaret Sloss Center for Women and Gender Equity at Iowa State University is committed to the development of a campus community that promotes gender equity and social justice. Through a feminist lens, the Sloss Center advocates for individuals and groups; provides support, referrals, community and programming; and maintains a safe space.
Working collaboratively with on and off campus services and programs, The Sloss Center strives to support gender equity and achievement toward intellectual, professional, and personal goals; participate in the formulation and review of campus policies, procedures, and programs relating to gender equity; and enhance students’ lives through programs addressing the diverse backgrounds and experiences of all people.
The Sloss Center works to promote social change through the following:
- The creation of community and networks for everyone
- Education through institutional training and curriculum development, in collaboration with academic and administrative departments and units
- Programming to empower all genders to participate in a fully equitable society
The Margaret Sloss Center for Women and Gender Equity envisions a campus community that works collaboratively to eliminate barriers that prohibit gender equity and social justice at Iowa State University.
