“Laura is an accomplished leader with outstanding experience in teaching, research, and extension and outreach,” ISU President Steven Leath said. “I am confident she will build upon Iowa State’s excellent reputation in the human sciences, broaden the range of interdisciplinary experiences available to our students and faculty, and expand the college’s impact in every corner of the state and beyond.”
