Hoosier Family Fellows in their own words: The Dugan family
Our son, Michael, fell in love with Bloomington, Indiana University, and The Media School. He was able to participate in many terrific programs and professional development activities through his journalism major. The academic and professional support he received through the school was outstanding.
Michael spread his enthusiasm to his family. We wanted to support these programs. We wanted to recognize the quality of the education he received—in the classroom and through his outside experiences. We wanted to say thank you by helping The Media School expand these opportunities for other students too.
Our gift to Indiana University provided us with the opportunity to see the work of The Media School firsthand and know that hard-working students would be further supported. It is wonderful to see how IU is at the forefront of advanced journalism practices.
We love IU almost as much as Michael does! Our gift allowed us to experience and support the excellence that Michael knew and to stay connected to the work of the Media School.
