Daedlow Receives IOWA Award

Ryan Daedlow of the Stead Technology Services Group at the Tippie College of Business is an individual winner of an Improving Our Workplace Award (IOWA). The purpose of the award is to recognize individuals and teams whose efforts demonstrate three of the following four components:

  • Initiative
  • Innovation
  • Measurable results
  • Sustaining impact

Ryan was recognized for creating an online application for the College's undergraduate program that allows students to set up their own appointments with academic advisors. He later worked with the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Academic Programs & Services and the Academic Advising Center to customize the application to meet their needs. Interfacing with Outlook, the application can include the student's reason for the visit and any notes needed for the advisor to view. Since January, 9,700 appointments have been scheduled by students in these three areas, freeing up staff for other necessary tasks.

Ryan was nominated for the award by Jim Chaffee, Peter Hubbard, Pat Mason-Browne, and Mark Fullenkamp.
