The Zoology Department at Iowa State University, originally called the Department of Zoology and Entomology became an autonomous group in 1975. The department's aim is to educate students toward knowledge ability and proficiency in the appropriate zoological disciplines as part of general, pre-professional and professional education; to foster and promote the professional competence of the faculty, and thus, directly and indirectly the educational welfare of students and, expansively, society; to contribute to the efficient operation of the University through a variety of services of individual staff and faculty members; and to contribute to the scientific understanding of biological knowledge and the education process through research and scholarly publication.
