Welcome to the
EH&S provides students with real-
world experiences and opportunities.
EH&S recognized students as tomorrow’s professionals who will promote safety by partnering with
many departments to provide students with experience and opportunities to foster a safety culture.
EH&S staff aligned with students in Technology Systems
Management 415/416 for senior capstone projects. One project
evaluated walking hazards on campus. Students identified problems
and proposed solutions that could benefit everyone using campus
walkways. Recommendations provided by these students will be
evaluated and implemented as EH&S focuses on slip, trip, and fall
hazards across campus.
EH&S worked with Environmental Science 203 students to collect surface
water quality samples through the Iowa Department of Natural Resources
IOWATER program. Students gained experience while assessing Iowa State
University’s impact on campus streams. Students safely collected samples
from eight monitoring locations along Clear Creek, College Creek, and Squaw
Creek to document nitrate levels, oxygen levels, clarity, water flow, and
EH&S partnered with Health Studies 305 students to complete
inspections of campus automated external defibrillators (AED), reinforcing
the importance of preparedness.
Involving students in identifying, evaluating, and solving high-impact safety
issues extended EH&S’ mission beyond the local community.
