About Us

The Iowa State University Professional and Scientific Council serves as a resource and an advocate for P&S employees. The Professional and Scientific Council is a representative body elected by, and responsible to, P&S employees at Iowa State University. The Council consists of approximately 40 members, including seven officers, elected from Academic Affairs, Business & Finance, President’s Office, and Student Affairs (or 1 representative for every 75 P&S employees). Please see our table of councilors and the areas which they represent.

The Council has several standing committees that serve specific needs: Peer Advocacy, Policies & Procedures, Compensation & Benefits, Professional Development, Representation, Awards, University Planning & Budget, and Communications. Full Professional and Scientific Council meetings are held monthly and are open to all employees.
