Chancellor Susan Sciame-Giesecke’s career at Indiana University Kokomo can truly be described as remarkable.

From her beginnings as an assistant professor of communication arts more than 40 years ago, all the way to the chancellor’s office, she has been a leader at all levels. Now, she’s stepping into a new role, as IU’s Vice President for Regional Campuses and Online Education.

In this issue, she reflects on her legacy at IU Kokomo – what’s been accomplished, and where the campus will go in the future.

Thank you, Chancellor, for your contributions in making IU Kokomo what it is today!

We hope you enjoy reading more about her impact on IU Kokomo and the communities we serve!

The last few years have been challenging for educators.

With a looming teacher shortage, the demands of both virtual and in-person classrooms amidst a global pandemic, and the everyday stresses that go with the job, it’s no wonder these essential workers are feeling the effects.

In this issue of Legacy, you will be inspired by our School of Education and its efforts not only to recruit and prepare future teachers, but also to support its alumni in the field, as well as our local schools. From the Tomorrow’s Teachers program, to  wellness mentoring, and lifelong learning, our faculty are making an impact on education in north central Indiana.

We hope you enjoy reading it!

In this issue of Legacy, you will meet amazing alumnae who are doing that every day in their careers.

Or Priyanka Singh Deo, who had the courage to move across the world to chase her dream job.

We hope you enjoy reading it!
