When I look out my office window near our iconic Sample Gates, I see the intelligent, creative and engaging people who make Indiana University Bloomington such an inspiring place to study, research and create.
Each person who walks through those gates contributes to the IU Bloomington story. That’s why I’m calling this new blog Through the Gates, and why I’m using this space to share the experiences and expertise of our students, faculty, staff, partners and visitors with the wider campus community.
I want these blog posts to inform, spark imaginations, and provide behind-the-scenes looks at all the work being done around the Bloomington campus as we approach our 2020 Bicentennial.
