IU Bloomington, one of the nation’s leading research institutions, houses a thriving academic community the size of a small city. Our dedicated staff members ensure our public health and safety, maintain our physical and technological infrastructure, and support our many diverse academic programs. Without the talent and commitment of these individuals, IU Bloomington would simply not function day to day, week to week, semester to semester.
Each year we honor the service of several select staff members whose contributions to IU Bloomington exemplify the very best our community has to offer. Deciding on the winners of the Staff Merit Awards was extremely difficult. We received enthusiastic nominations from across campus, and the nomination letters, written by co-workers, all reflected the respect and camaraderie that define our vibrant community.
To the six winners of this year’s Staff Merit Awards, I offer my heartfelt congratulations on this well-deserved honor. And to all those nominated, I extend my thanks on behalf of the entire IU Bloomington community for all you do to make our campus an inspiring place to work and live.
Provost and Executive Vice President
