Architectural rendering of the proposed Horseshoe Foundation of Floyd
County Amphitheater.
The Horseshoe Foundation of Floyd County awarded IU
Southeast a $300,000 grant to build a permanent outdoor
amphitheater.
The new space, located at the site of the current IU Southeast
amphitheater behind Knobview Hall, will give students,
faculty, staff, and the community a location to host concerts,
theatrical performances, special events, and more.
Students and the community will benefit from this unique
space on campus which will increase participation in
educational, arts, and extracurricular activities,” said IU
Southeast development officer Melissa Weissinger.
The space also would continue to be used as the primary site
for IU Southeast commencement ceremonies.
The new structure will be named the Horseshoe Foundation
of Floyd County Amphitheater.
Longtime faculty member Elaine Haub has been named the new Dean of Natural Sciences at Indiana
University Southeast. Haub began her new position on July 1, replacing outgoing Dean Ben Nassim,
who served as interim dean since 2012.

School of Natural Sciences. She received her B.S. in chemistry from IU Southeast in 1987 and her
Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Louisville in 1993.
In addition to teaching at IU Southeast, Haub served as the coordinator of the chemistry program.
The School of Nursing at IU Southeast is searching for a new dean. The position, currently held by
