Impact Award

Jeff & Deb Hansen Agriculture Student Center Receives Impact Award

On Friday, October 28th, 2016, the Hansen Center received the Impact Award, one of the most prestigious awards presented by the Iowa State University Alumni Association. This award was established by the Alumni Association in 2000 to recognize individuals, businesses, organizations, or units whose programs or accomplishments bring broad recognition to the university and increased involvement of ISU constituents in the life of the university during the year prior to nomination. Our facility is the first of its kind to receive this great honor. The Hansen Center was recognized during a special awards ceremony held on the Friday of Homecoming Week, along with two additional recipients. Dr. Jeff Johnson, CEO of the Iowa State University Alumni Association spoke highly of the Hansen Center during the ceremony, stating that the facility is “a student-run educational incubator that benefits not just the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, but the larger community.” Dr. Johnson also mentioned that our student employees are learning about event planning and coordination, facilities maintenance, marketing, and more. 

Thank you to  Marshall Ruble (Manager) and Sarah Al-Mazroa (Graduate Student/Assistant Manager) for their hard work putting the nomination together.
