Nursing students awarded for community involvement

IU Southeast nursing students, in

partnership with the New Albany

Housing Authority (NAHA), received a

national merit award for their work with

NAHA residents.

Students performed home visits for the

elderly, and people with chronic mental

illness, who could not otherwise leave

their home for care. They also designed

healthy workshops and created events

to educate and support those in need.

Combined, IU Southeast students

were able to reach nearly 300 NAHA

residents, filling a critical healthcare


The mutually beneficial relationship

began three years ago as a trial

semester, and has evolved to become a

permanent fixture in the public health

nursing curriculum.

Charter Ceremony

The Student Veterans Organization (SVO) at Indiana University Southeast sponsored the charter of an American Legion

post on campus, Ashton L.M. Goodman Post 109.

The institution of the Post is historic for a number of reasons. Ashton L.M. Goodman Post 109 is the first American Legion

Post in Indiana to be named after a female fallen soldier, and one of the only Posts in the state with women in command. It

is also the only American Legion Post sponsored by IU Southeast.
