Emily Bowers (Academic Adviser II, Civil, Construction & Environmental Engineering)

Collaboration, Engagement, Diversity; these are the primary reasons I chose to join the Iowa State community nearly one year ago as an Academic Adviser.  After several years of working in k-12 education as well as advising at other universities, I have come to realize the importance of professional development, opportunities for growth, and having a voice in significant decisions.  Although I have only been at Iowa State for a short time, I have felt accepted and valued in this community and would welcome the opportunity to represent my constituents as a member of the Professional & Scientific Council.
