IDEAL (InDustrial Engineers are Leaders) Learning Communities
At Iowa State University, learning communities are groups of students who generally take several courses together and are in similar major programs. IDEAL Learning Communities help Industrial Engineering students transition into college life by developing a supportive network of students, peer mentors, faculty and staff. Peer mentors are successful, experienced IE students who share their academic, internship, study abroad and campus involvement experiences with community members. They regularly schedule out-of-class activities, ranging from study groups to social events.
