AMES, Iowa -- Two candidates for the director of Iowa State University's Margaret Sloss Women's Center have been announced.

The candidates are Penny Rosenthal, director of Iowa State's Off Campus and Adult Student Services Office and interim director of the Women’s Center, and Sharon Jacobson, director of Better Community Coalition at the State University of New York-Brockport and co-director of the SUNY-Brockport Women’s Center. Jacobson also is an adjunct professor of women's studies.

The Women's Center director provides advocacy, referral services and programming for the ISU community, and coordinates women's programs and celebrations. The Office of Student Affairs and the Office of the Provost oversee the women's center.

Each candidate will have a university open forum, a diversity forum, and a student forum. All members of the university and Ames community are invited to attend.
