SPOTLIGHTING IU SUCCESS
Julie Mathias came to IU to study business, but in the end, her lifelong love for animals overruled her initial choice. Julie turned her passion into a double major in neuroscience and animal behavior, and kick started Indiana Canine Assistant Network Service Dogs at IU with her best friend. ICAN works with incarcerated adults throughout Indiana to train and care for service dogs. After training, the dogs are paired with a person with a physical or developmental disability.Learn about Julie
Jazz at Jacobs
It's hard to believe, but there was a time when jazz was not an integral part of Indiana University's Jacobs School of Music. Today, of course, that has all changed. The Jacobs School's jazz program is one of the most highly regarded in the world. It has a rich curriculum, an inspired faculty, and a breadth of student performing activities that is unsurpassed. And now with new faculty members and facilities, its future looks brighter than ever.Learn about the department
Committed to art
One of the cornerstones of a second-grade education in Monroe County is the field trip to the IU Eskenazi Museum of Art. But with a three-year closure due to renovation, tour coordinator Patsy Rahm had to get creative. The solution? Bring the museum to the classroom, while also still bringing the students to campus. Patsy helped organize classroom visits that showcase the art of the museum, as well as an outdoor tour where students could sketch and visit various campus sculptures.
