Our Life’s Work. Finding Time for Your Passions and Pursuits



Established in the fall of 2008, the Work/Life Advisory Committee advises the executive vice president and provost, as chief personnel officer, on issues of managing professional and personal lives. A key goal is to identify ways to maintain a university environment that will lead to effective recruitment, retention, and advancement of faculty, staff, and graduate students. The committee conducts ongoing review of current policies and practices to identify gaps or ineffective policies and practices. The committee works with faculty, staff, and administrators with responsibilities for these issues to design new policies, practices, and training. Attendees to this session will have the opportunity to find out more about the university’s Work/Life Advisory Committee. We will explore the connection between work/life issues and diversity issues. A panel of Iowa State University community members will share their personal stories about how they strive to integrate their work and their outside lives while also finding time for their passions.
