Cassling Family Faculty Awards

The Cassling Family Faculty Awards recognize and reward outstanding faculty in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Two faculty members will receive a monetary award – one for outstanding teaching performance over an extended period of time at Iowa State and one for early achievement in teaching.

The awards were established by Randal and Lori Cassling of Omaha, Neb, in honor of Randal’s parents, Robert and Rita Lenore Dunn Cassling of Omaha, Neb. Robert Cassling is a 1956 graduate of Iowa State while Rita attended Iowa State and was a former Homecoming queen.
