Through Voices, the Iowa State Daily seeks to facilitate civil discourse and build awareness about diversity on the Iowa State University campus.

This website is a place to share, listen, educate, learn and inspire. It is a place to tell stories of what makes us different, yet similar, in our experiences, in our values and in our beliefs. We hope to set the precedent for future students and ISU community members, that this campus is a place to challenge your thoughts while respecting others’ beliefs and backgrounds.
