Page Background



Personal health often correlates closely with

the economic health of a region. But to elevate

quality of life for all in southern Indiana, we

must open doors to education and create a

vibrant workforce that will invest its talents in

our local businesses and neighborhoods.

In 2016, two new bridges will connect

Indiana and Kentucky over the Ohio River,

significantly improving traffic flow between

the states and stimulating growth throughout

the area. Currently, IU Southeast has a tuition

reciprocity agreement with several counties

in Kentucky. And as new pathways open to

our campus, we anticipate that thousands of

additional residents will have greater access

to IU Southeast.

However, it’s crucial that we not only seek

to increase enrollment, but continue to

build on our legacy of creating stronger

communities through a highly educated

population. To fully meet the educational

needs in our part of the state, we need to be

prepared to expand on every level—including

facilities, academics, experiential learning

opportunities, and technology.

Our greatest goal is to be recognized as a

leader in education and to remain an excellent

provider of nurses, teachers, business

professionals, scientists, counselors, and

more for our region. To realize this objective,

we need your help. Your support of IU

Southeast will ensure that no member of the

community is left behind.



IU Southeast chemistry major Josh Scalf is

a 10-year veteran of the Lafayette Township

Fire Protection District in Floyds Knobs, and

uses his background to help other firefighters

understand the chemistry of fire. With the

help of JimWilliams, visiting professor of

chemistry, Scalf recently published a series of

articles to help firefighters do their job more

safely and efficiently.

Adam Maksl, assistant professor of

journalism, heads up the project Southern

Indiana on the Move, which includes a website

focused on the local business community

and its recent success and economic

development plans, especially those related

to the Ohio River Bridges Project. This type

of work informs our geographic area, but

even more, it influences his students, who are

achieving regional renown and who will carry

this knowledge into their careers.

These are but two of many examples of

exceptional faculty and students who are

committed to having a real and lasting

effect for the greater good. We invite you to

support their work. With your assistance,

more individuals at IU Southeast will have

opportunities to create better practices,

stronger businesses, and a more successful

region, for the benefit of all.
