Shaping Powerful
Futures: The Campaign
for IU Southeast
Indiana University Southeast is shaping
powerful futures every day. Now the
community has a special opportunity to
play a part in the University’s mission.
In December, IU Southeast began the
public phase of an $11 million, eight-
year capital campaign with specific
focuses on supporting student learning,
a dynamic campus
environment, building legacy and
tradition, and advancing educational
“At no time in our history has there
been such an extraordinary opportunity
for advancement,” said Chancellor
Sandra R. Patterson-Randles.
Shaping Powerful Futures: The
Campaign for IU Southeast has raised
more than $6.4 million since the
silent phase began four years ago. The
campaign, which continues through
2015, will help the University continue
in its 70-year mission to transform
good students into great leaders – one
graduate at a time.
The campaign aims to provide
student scholarships, to strengthen
infrastructure through the expansion
of the Student Activities Building,
to beautify the campus and enrich
extracurricular activities, and to endow
faculty positions.
These key areas will allow the
University to continue providing the
highest quality education possible in
the Southern Indiana area.
“Nearly 90 percent of IU Southeast
alumni stay in Southern Indiana or the
Greater Louisville Metropolitan Region
after graduation,” Patterson-Randles
said. “Through their professional,
personal, and civic contributions, they
powerfully shape the future of this
region. It is incumbent upon all of us to
ensure that they are superbly prepared
to do so.”
The campaign is co-chaired by
alumni Doug England (B.S. ‘77) and
Sue Sanders (B.S. ‘81). Members of
the community serving as honorary
chairs of the campaign include
William Cochran, Claudia Crump,
Judith O’Bannon, Norman Pfau
Jr., James and Phyllis Robinson,
Judge Carlton Sanders, and J.
Robert Shine.
“This campaign has special meaning
for us,” England and Sanders said
in a letter to the community. “Our
experiences with IU Southeast shaped
our lives in ways we never imagined.
We also have seen the campus
change the lives of others. To keep
this opportunity available for new
generations of students, we invite you
to join us.”
