Iowa State University Land Acknowledgement

We would like to begin this event with a land acknowledgment. Iowa State University is located on the ancestral lands and territory of the Baxoje, or Ioway Nation. The United States obtained the land from the Meskwaki and Sauk nations in the Treaty of 1842. We wish to recognize our obligations to this land and to the people who took care of it, as well as to the 17,000 Native people who live in Iowa today.

We encourage you to fully participate on social media

Statement on COVID-19 

As we continue to navigate the ongoing pandemic and public health crisis, the health and safety of our community and stakeholders is of paramount concern. While the release of vaccines has marked a significant advance in this public health crisis, safety and health concerns around large gatherings will likely persist through the summer.
The Iowa State University planning team has been working diligently to assess the impact of the ongoing pandemic on the NVSS 2021 and, after careful consideration, has made the decision to present the event virtually this summer.
