Memorial Union Gold Star Hall Committee


The committee exists to solicit, review and recommend names of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice in service to their country through military service for inclusion in Gold Star Hall. Memorializing those who lost their lives in military conflicts was the driving force for creating the Iowa State Memorial Union and so many unions around the country. The committee strives to ensure this historical commitment is a priority for all generations of Iowa State University students.

The committee may include—

  • Appropriate members of the Alumni Association
  • Office of the Registrar representative (i.e., those who can verify student status)
  • ISU professors of Military Science
  • Memorial Union representative(s)
  • Interested veterans
  • Currently enrolled ISU students appointed by GSB

As the membership representation is somewhat flexible, the current composition reflects the current membership.


The Gold Star Hall Committee reviews names submitted for inclusion in Gold Star Hall to determine if they meet the criteria for being listed in Iowa State’s memorial. In addition, it plans the annual ceremony on Veterans’ Day. The committee meets several times a year, as needed.
