Iowa State University ADVANCE Program, Annual Report, Year 1: June 2007

In the first year, we built infrastructure for our collaborative transformation program by selecting ADVANCE Professors for the first three departments and college-level Equity Advisors. These partners and the Deans/Associate Deans meet with the ADVANCE Team in regular planning meetings. We developed the research protocols essential for conducting interviews with department chairs and faculty. We conducted the first round of faculty interviews in three focal departments. We will analyze the data this summer and share the results with the departments next fall during needs assessment meetings. During the first year we have collected data from ISU’s Office of Institutional Research (IR), which will be used both for reporting on the current state of the university and statistical analysis combined with the focus group and survey data. Furthermore, we have planned a survey of faculty on space issues and job satisfaction for the fall of 2007. The sampling design and analysis of this survey are integrated with information from IR. We also developed resource materials for a diversity workshop and discussions of subtle gender bias. We shared information about the ISU ADVANCE Program with the university community through our Web site

2. Expected Results: The magazine is recognized as one of the University’s biggest outreach tools, reaching over 20,000 alumni and friends of the University. With a better product comes increased alumni pride and more of a feeling of investment – the ultimate goal being that that feeling of pride parlays into capital support. However that goal can not be reached until the production process is cleaned up. As such, those parties involved, specifically the UR Director, need to become more educated in “Best Practices,” as well as best avenues. Status quo does not need to remain simply out of habit.

Digital Repository @ Iowa State University, Fiscal Year 2015 Annual Report

Digital Repository @ Iowa State University, Fiscal Year 2015 Annual Report

The repository supports Iowa State’s land-grant mission, sharing knowledge far beyond the borders of our campus. Since its launch, the repository has received visitors from 219 countries and territories. Many of our readers would not have access to the research and scholarship produced by our faculty without the repository. We’ve fielded requests for more information on the research found in the repository from engineers in South Africa working in the field and students in the Philippines working on their dissertations. By making Iowa State’s scholarship freely accessible over the internet, we are able to reach industry, students, scholars in developing countries and others without the resources to access expensive journals and databases.

Office of the State Archaeologist, The University of Iowa, Annual Report for Fiscal Year 2013

Office of the State Archaeologist, The University of Iowa, Annual Report for Fiscal Year 2013

Long-time Office of the State Archaeol og - ist (OSA) staff mem- ber Joe Artz retired from The University of Iowa (UI) effective March 1. Joe started at OSA in 1989 with the Highway Archaeology Program (HAP), hav- ing worked previously as an archaeologist in Kansas (where he earned his M.A. degree) and in North Dakota on a variety of contract- and grant-funded projects. As part of the HAP staff, Joe had the chance to work on projects in many parts of Iowa and became increasingly interested in geoarchaeological issues including landscape evolution, site formation processes, and the preservation potential of different sediments. In 1999 Joe launched a major initiative at the OSA by tak- ing over the reins of the Iowa Site File and literally usher- ing it into the twenty first century by securing grants to digitize the data and create a geographic information sys- tem–based Internet access system called I-Sites. In both its public and professional versions, I-Sites revolutionized access to information about Iowa archaeological sites. Al- though it reduced the number of archaeologists trekking to Iowa City to visit OSA, enhanced access to the Iowa Site File has increased the quality of archaeological con- sulting. Joe successfully developed other geospatial initia- tives during his tenure at the OSA and project teams he organized and managed tackled projects like improving the South Dakota guidelines for conducting geoarchaeo- logical investigations and assisting the State of Minnesota with projects utilizing LiDAR (LIght Detection And Rang- ing) technology to discover, document, and preserve buri- al mounds. In post-UI retirement Joe remains active with his research efforts in Portugal with Katina Lillios of the UI Anthropology Department and in the Plains-Midwest region having teamed up with EarthView Environmental, Inc., a consulting firm based in Coralville, Iowa. You can contact Joe at joe@earthviewenvironmental.com.

ISU ADVANCE Annual Report, Year 2: June 2008

ISU ADVANCE Annual Report, Year 2: June 2008

Our discussions with the many different groups, however, indicated some common concerns and some potential strategies to address the concerns in the near-term. For example, three common issues identified were mentoring, work-life issues, and recruiting. We suggest some changes regarding each that we believe should be designed as University initiatives organized at fairly high levels in the University structure. In the case of mentoring, while our interviewees were all aware of the current University policy, most believed that it was not very effective. There also was a general consensus that Associate Professors receive less consistent mentoring than Assistant Professors and that this was a problem. Our suggestion is for appropriate individuals, including faculty from a broad spectrum of campus, come together and redesign a mentoring process based on state-of the art methods for effective mentoring. Regarding work-life issues, at several of our meetings some work-life issues were raised as impediments to hiring new faculty, especially women. One individual, for example, stated that some women job candidates in his department were shocked to find that there was no maternity leave policy. We believe that rectifying this situation is an example of an initiative the University can immediately review and seek to implement via a policy change. In some cases, it appeared that work-family policies were in place but not well known or understood. For example, the fact that the “stop-the-tenure clock” option is relatively easy to obtain was not well known; there also was confusion about the new spousal accommodation policy. In particular, chairs could be informed in a systematic way about all the different policies that exist in order to ensure that their faculty are properly

Iowa NSF EPSCoR 2012 Annual Report—Year 1

Iowa NSF EPSCoR 2012 Annual Report—Year 1

Following incorporation of additional revisions based upon input from the committee, both of these documents were endorsed in May 2012. The Charter and Bylaws establishes the responsibilities of this committee and the mechanisms by which decisions are made and acted upon by the committee and importantly, enabled creation of ad hoc committees which could include external members as well as providing a mechanism for the Executive Committee to act promptly where time sensitive decisions were deemed important. Following Governing Committee endorsement the State S and T Plan was presented to the Governor who had Economic Development staff review this to assure that this plan effectively consolidated existing S and T reports with the RII goals, changes in the states approach to innovation and Iowa’s strong current focus on reforming STEM education. The Science and Technology plan was endorsed by Governor Branstad this spring. It links 2004 and 2009 consulting reports from the Battelle Research Group outlining a strategy for Iowa’s potential for economic development in three broad areas: Advanced Manufacturing, Biosciences, and Information Technology. The reports define several actions that the state could undertake in these areas to leverage and enhance several state assets. From these actions, we selected those that the committee members felt were related to investments in research infrastructure within the state. In addition, this plan incorporates two other government priority areas: the Iowa Innovation Council (a division of the Iowa Economic Development Authority), and the Iowa STEM Advisory Council. Jordan Cohen has announced his plans to retire from the University of Iowa later this summer or fall. The Committee is planning to meet to review eligible candidates to succeed him as Chair and then, as proscribed in the Bylaws, forward those names to the three Board of Regents University Presidents for approval.

State of Iowa Public Drinking Water Program 2015 Annual Compliance Report

State of Iowa Public Drinking Water Program 2015 Annual Compliance Report

Under the federal Stage 1 Disinfectants/Disinfection Byproducts Rule, large systems were required to start monitoring for disinfection byproducts in 2002, with medium and small systems starting in 2004. Usually a system monitors for a year before an MCL violation can occur, so the first violations began respectively in 2003 and 2005. After peaking in 2005, systems implemented various techniques to reduce the levels of disinfection byproducts formed in the distribution systems. In the last quarter of 2012, the Stage 2 DBPR compliance monitoring calculation changed for the largest system category from a system-wide running annual average to a locational running annual average. The remaining three categories of systems were phased into the new compliance calculation by the second quarter of 2014. There were increased numbers of violations under the new compliance calculation method; however an overall decrease was seen in 2015 over 2014.

STATE OF IOWA JUNE 8, 2011 UNDERGRADUATE AND GRADUATE PROGRAMS IN THE COLLEGE OF BUSINESS ACCREDITATION REPORT AT IOWA STATE UNIVERSITY

The College has experienced a slight decline in the number of female students majoring in Business and is well below the university average. More emphasis needs to be placed on recruiting and retaining a diverse student population. The College has just started a new doctoral program this year. Because it is only in its first year, it is difficult to review in any depth. The Peer Review Team recommends including a robust strategic plan in your next report for the continued roll out of the doctoral program, including recruitment and placement strategies. Furthermore, the school should continue to focus on faculty qualifications, especially given the recent launch of this Ph.D. program.

07-5 Finding: University P-Card (University Wide) P-Card transactions were not always handled in accordance with University of Illinois Office of Business and Financial Services Policies and Procedures. The University of Illinois uses a credit card, referred to as a P-Card, to simplify small dollar purchases. University employees may be issued a P-Card with the approval of their Department Head and Fiscal Officer. The P-Card works like any personal credit card and is billed monthly to the University. Vendors are paid directly by the issuing bank and the University pays the bank with a single monthly payment. Purchases are tracked through the P-Card web based computer software and are automatically posted to the University’s general ledger system. The University’s P-Card program has five defined roles: (1) department card manager, (2) cardholder, (3) software reconciler, (4) software approver, and (5) financial statements reconciler. The University has established a Corporate Card Office to provide management over the University P-Card Program.
