Dr. Theresa Cooper through the LEAD IT collective has provided spaces for my personal growth as well as learning about the cultures of other races. I have become culturally competent and feel comfortable in spaces than before. LEAD IT is my family at Iowa State away from home. Dr. Cooper is very sensitive to student welfare and cares for everyone to achieve their potential.
I can openly engage in conversations of DEI which many people don’t want to talk about and I owe sincere and heartfelt thanks to Dr. Cooper.
