It is time to bridge the visibility gap
As IU approaches its bicentennial celebration in 2020, Women’s Philanthropy seeks to honor the unsung pioneers who have quietly transformed the lives of countless students, or who have achieved national and international recognition for their work but haven’t been as heralded at their home institution.
Through archival research and personal interviews conducted at Indiana University, we can learn of distinguished IU women and minority alumni whose stories need to be told. This project expands the ranks of the role models we hold up as exemplars of the Hoosier spirit.
The IU Women’s Philanthropy Visibility Fund will help ensure that recognition projects such as plaques, portraits, and statues can continue in perpetuity as worthy individuals are proposed for recognition.
