NEW ALBANY, Ind. — IU Southeast kicked off its 75th anniversary celebration year while also announcing its goal for the For All: Indiana University Bicentennial Campaign at a ceremony on Friday, Dec. 4.
Addressing a room full of donors, faculty, staff and friends of the university, Chancellor Ray Wallace announced the institution’s $14 million goal as part of the For All campaign’s 5-year, $2.5 billion initiative. All funds raised by IU Southeast will stay on campus to support its students, professors and local community. The generous impact donors have already made on campus, Wallace said, has been “transformational.”
“We at IU Southeast have the opportunity to generate the critical private support necessary to continue changing our communities for the better,” he said. “By training new generations of professionals and advancing a broad range of disciplines, we will conquer the exciting challenges yet to come, lifting each other higher in the process.”
IU Southeast looks to 2016 as the celebration of its 75th year of providing quality education for the region.
“From its humble beginnings as the Indiana University Falls City Area Center to what we see today as Indiana University Southeast, the geography may have changed in 75 years but the purpose has not—to educate and prepare students for productive citizenship in a diverse and global society,” Wallace said.
