Image For Campustown by Anthony Capps

Campustown by Anthony Capps

Item Description

For more than one hundred years, Campustown has served the students and community of Iowa State University. The originally residential neighborhood west of Ames was born in the early 1900s, when the school compelled students to seek residence off campus. However, local government overlooked the neighborhood, and it fell behind the achievements of Big Ames. After the boom of the previous decade, community leaders organized a secession movement in 1916. It took nearly a quarter century, but the neighborhood finally connected to the grid of public utilities. Author Anthony Capps takes readers on a journey from Campustown’s roots, through its vibrant years in the 1960s to current projects breathing new life into the district.

Hancher vs. Hilton: Iowa's Rival University Presidents

Item Description

Hancher vs. Hilton: Iowa's Rival University Presidents by Matt Kuhns.

In the late 1950s presidents of rival schools the University of Iowa, and Iowa State, began a several-year feud which redefined both institutions. While President of Iowa State, James Hilton worked to transform the "state college" into a broader university. But Virgil Hancher was deeply suspicious of the prospects for two, competing state universities after years of struggle to obtain funds for the University of Iowa, and fought hard for an alternate vision. The result was a contest over educational philosophy, petty administrative details and bottom-line financial advantage. The rival presidents fought in public forums, and behind the scenes in remarkably pointed memos and meetings. The product of more than two years’ archival research, "Hancher vs. Hilton" reintroduces the largely forgotten individuals behind two iconic names, whose full stories have gone untold for more than 50 years.

Sustainable Business in Iowa

Item Description

Sustainable Business in Iowa: How Leading Companies Profit from Environmental and Social Responsibility.

By Adam Hammes

Companies around the world are combining environmental and social responsibility to achieve improved financial performance. Yet, with the many elements that go into a strategic sustainability plan, businesses and their employees often get mired in the details. The first part of this book shows step-by-step how to define a sustainability plan that fits your organization. The second part is a choose-your-own-adventure reference guide to environmental and social initiatives that will help improve your bottom line.

Adam Hammes weaves together easy-to-understand models, business examples, and personal stories from his years of experience. Drawing from his time as the first manager of sustainability for Kum & Go, an independent sustainability consultant, and the executive director of the Iowa Sustainable Business Forum, the book explains what sustainable business means and documents the well-researched ways in which environmental and social responsibility programs unfold inside companies. Over 30 case studies from responsible Iowa businesses illustrate exactly what you can do to assess your organization and take the next successful step. Some of these examples you will recognize, and hopefully many will be new.

Sustainable Business in Iowa provides a simple framework for any professional who is committed to environmental and social performance, but who feels stuck and unsure of where to go next.

  • The Five Stage Journey - Learn the five stages of corporate sustainability initiatives. Know where you stand, so you can prepare for a successful move to the next stage.
  • Related Issues - Learn how environmental and social issues develop in their later stages. Discover how working on related issues separately can severely limit success.
  • Advancing Stages - Learn what moves a company from one stage of an initiative to the next. Grasp how to facilitate that transition, generate momentum fast, and save time.

Envision an Iowa where every business professional understands how to lead financially, environmentally, and socially responsible change in the workplace.

Envision an Iowa where more and more local companies are seen as national and global leaders in sustainable business.

Sustainable Business in Iowa shows you how that future is possible.

Women And The Land by Barbara Hall & Kathryn Gamble

Item Description

Women and the Land takes a look at more than twenty-five women who are impacting Iowa’s farmland. Some of them have inherited rural property and are managing the agriculture practices from afar. Some are working the land directly, providing food to the heartland. Some are working in tandem with their husbands, fathers, sisters, daughters. Many of them grew up on a farm, left the land to get an education and left the state to follow their passions, only to find that their deepest passion is really the land, and have returned to it. Each of the women is affecting the land in her own unique and feminine way.
