The Herald-Times, IU beat reporter

Mike Leonard covers higher education and writes a general interest column for The Herald-Times in Bloomington. He was a full time columnist with free rein for two decades but says the staff cuts required him to return to a reporting beat have been strangely gratifying. Since, he’s been thrust into the issues in higher education and the fascinating world of student scholarship, teaching, research and administration at IU. Leonard grew up in Greenfield, IN and graduated with honors from Ball State University, majoring in journalism and English. His time in Indiana and his work in journalism make him a fair arbiter of all things IU. He does not own, nor has ever worn, candy-striped pants.
