Iowa State University is committed to proactively facilitating your well-being. We welcome and encourage you to contact these on-campus services for assistance regarding your physical, intellectual, occupational, spiritual, environmental, financial, social, and/or emotional needs:
If you are dealing with heightened feelings of sadness or hopelessness, thoughts of harm or suicide, or increased anxiety may contact the ISU Crisis Text Line (Text ISU to 741-741) or contact ISU Police Department 515-294-4428.
To learn effectively, you must have basic security: a roof over your head along with a reliable place to sleep and enough food to eat (view the Food Security at ISU Student Wellness page).
If you’re having trouble with any of those things, please talk with your instructor, academic advisor or the Dean of Students Office (email email@example.com, phone 515-294-1020). Together we can work to meet those needs.
Iowa State University is committed to assuring that all educational activities are free from discrimination and harassment based on disability status. Students requesting accommodations for a documented disability are required to work directly with staff in Student Accessibility Services (SAS) to establish eligibility and learn about related processes before accommodations will be identified. After eligibility is established, SAS staff will create and issue a Notification Letter for each course listing approved reasonable accommodations. This document will be made available to the student and instructor either electronically or in hard-copy every semester. Students and instructors are encouraged to review contents of the Notification Letters as early in the semester as possible to identify a specific, timely plan to deliver/receive the indicated accommodations. Reasonable accommodations are not retroactive in nature and are not intended to be an unfair advantage. Additional information or assistance is available online through the Student Accessibility Services website, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling 515-294-7220. Student Accessibility Services is a unit in the Dean of Students Office located at 1076 Student Services Building.
This barrier to access form (Shart Sheet) is intended to bring accessibility concerns to the Office of Equal Opportunity and Facilities Management and Planning attention.
