I am honored to serve as Indiana University’s 18th first lady. I follow a long line of distinguished women who have been “partners in the presidency” since IU was founded in 1820. Since July of 2007, I have had the good fortune to meet and interact with faculty and staff, students and alumni, donors and community leaders across IU’s eight campuses and beyond. Like them, I never cease to be inspired by this university’s stellar academic and athletic traditions and its strong community spirit. And like them, I feel moved to do all I can to help IU grow and prosper into the future. The links posted on this website describe some of the organizations through which I’m able to make a contribution to IU and the surrounding community. I hope you find them useful in your own exploration of this great university.
