Student Success

You have the power to change a student’s life forever.

Educating students is the heart and soul of our mission. We have the privilege—and the responsibility—of preparing the leaders, thinkers, and problem-solvers who will assure a strong future for Indiana, the nation, and the world.

But we need your help. When you give to the bicentennial campaign, your gift will enhance student success by:

  • Providing educational access and financial support
  • Building innovative learning spaces
  • Focusing on career development
  • Developing diversity and community service initiatives
  • Advancing the arts

For all the lives we'll touch

Marv Smalley, BS’80, has led a life defined by service. After a four-year active stint in the U.S. Air Force, Smalley spent 29 years with the Indiana State Police (ISP) before serving as a U.S. Department of Defense liaison for the 1994 FIFA World Cup, 1996 Summer Olympic Games, and the 2002 Winter Olympics. Thanks to his generosity, he’ll enable generations of IU students to follow in his footsteps.

Smalley recently funded the largest endowed scholarship in the history of the School of Public and Environmental Affairs at IUPUI. Smalley’s gift will support two full-tuition scholarships each year for current and retired members of the ISP, as well as the children, stepchildren, grandchildren, and step-grandchildren of ISP officers.

Imagine the world we could create if everyone who was able to give did so like Marv Smalley. The need exists. They are out there: the future doctors and teachers and civil servants who could thrive with your support. Let’s give them what they need to flourish.
