Angie Mallory, PhD graduate student in Rhetoric and Professional Communication (RPC), will be representing ISU at the University Innovation Alliance meeting in Washington DC later this month. This group is an 11-member collaborative of universities. Their meeting will be highlighting the unique things each institution does to retain students and to help them succeed. Iowa State’s scalable project is learning communities. ISU is taking a small group of people to Washington for the unveiling event on September 16, and because of Angie Mallory’s work on the Veterans Learning Community, they have chosen her to be a part of their delegation.
