House History

A University Professor in the School of Education, Daniel Robinson’s advocacy for diversity spans more than four decades. He arrived at Iowa State in 1965 as a student athlete and was one of only a few students of color. After receiving his bachelor’s, master’s and Ph.D. here, he joined the faculty in 1972 and was the first African-American to become an assistant dean, department chair, and University Professor at Iowa State. Known as “Dr. Dan,” Robinson has been an active and vocal advocate for all faculty, staff, and students including women; ethnic minorities; people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender; those from other countries and those with disabilities. Robinson is a co-developer of the nation’s first social justice certificate program and Iowa State’s Dialogues on Diversity course.
