Business Cards

The multitude of recognized student organizations at Iowa State are impressive long-term traditions of our campus culture. They are an example of why Iowa State is the most student-centered public research university in the nation. In recognition of the leadership opportunities these clubs provide our students, the university has developed a special template and established procedures for officers of such groups to have printed business cards. The design template communicates the student’s official capacity with the group and reflects the club’s connection with the university. Student leaders need to clearly understand that they are representing the university when they use these special cards for identification purposes.

Business cards may be requested by officers as listed for each Sponsored and Affiliated recognized student organization in the database

Requests are to be submitted through the Student Activities Center (SAC) for review and approval. Complete the form by clicking continue at the bottom of this page. George Micalone, Director of Student Activities and Assistant Director of the Memorial Union, reviews and approves requests. Upon approval, requests will be forwarded electronically to ISU Printing. The business card proof will be e-mailed to the student for proofing and copied to the director of student activities. The student is responsible for approval of proof.

This program was developed by University Marketing, Trademark Licensing, Student Activities Center and the Campus Organizations Accounting Office, and approved by the Senior Vice President of Business and Finance.

The guidelines below are for sponsored and affiliated recognized student organization officers who may desire to have a business type card to identify himself or herself as affiliated with a particular organization or club. The purpose of the cards are traditionally used for networking at professional conferences, presentations, and large scale university events and programs. The Student Activities Center will be the key unit that oversees requests made by the recognized organizations.
