Welcome IU Families

August 2016

Greetings IU Families:

I am honored to be serving as the Vice Provost for Student Affairs and Dean of Students at Indiana University. I arrived on campus in July and share many of the same feelings and experiences as our new students. I am excited, proud, overwhelmed, and some days lost. When I do get lost, I have found friendly staff who help direct me or I take advantage of the moment and enjoy the beauty of this campus. Every day I learn more and more about our campus and look forward to supporting our students. Like our students IU is quickly becoming my home.

As the Vice Provost for Student Affairs, I have the privilege of overseeing a Division which provides programs and services to help IU students succeed. These services range from helping all students feel welcomed and included, to providing quality health care, to helping students develop as global leaders, to creating a safe and healthy campus. We have excellent resources available for students and as their parents or guardians, I hope you are encouraging them to take advantage of all the resources and opportunities available to them.

We want to be partners with you to ensure your students maximize their experiences at IU, graduate on time, and develop into lifelong learners. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me. We are grateful that your student is at Indiana University. I hope it is a great fall semester. Best wishes and Go Hoosiers!
