Sloss Center Support 

Contact the Sloss Center staff at if you would like personal and private assistance navigating resouces available to you at Iowa State and in the Ames Community. 


The Sloss Center for Women and Gender Equity has a long history of supporting students navigating pregnancy and parenting while pursuing their academic degrees. We believe that education builds futures. 

We want all students to feel supported in their path to a degree; whether you’re balancing your studies with caring for dependents, struggling financially, are food insecure, are in an unsafe home situation, or need additional academic support - our staff can help you find the resources to help.

When you meet with someone on our staff, you’re connecting with someone who is knowledgeable about our extensive campus resources as well as community partners.

Below are examples of resources that you can learn more about during your appointment with us. We strive to constantly update our list of resources and providers so that you don’t have to. We work collaboratively with our academic and student affairs partners as well as organizations that cater to expectant mothers and parents in the wider Ames community. Reach out for a private consultation with Sloss Center staff by emailing or visiting our offices on the second floor of the Sloss House.
