The Women of IU South Bend

The Women of IU South Bend is a dedicated group of women invested in the future of our campus, its students, and the community. Their primary goal is to support initiatives and programs that will further the growth of the university and the region.

The members of the Women of IU South Bend, work with like-minded women who generously lead by example. This council creates inclusive and diverse learning experiences to engage women – connecting them to IU South Bend and to each other. Membership in the council will include two programs per year, one educational and one arts entertainment, plus the opportunity, as a group, to provide input on giving priorities to support programs on campus and in the region.

A gift through the South Bend Chancellor's Fund for the Women of IU South Bend, make a positive impact on our students, faculty, staff, and the community. These funds support initiatives and priorities on our campus. These gifts create experiential learning opportunities, provide innovative programs to respond to our community’s challenges, and give support for science, the arts, and more. Women of IU South Bend provide input to help the Chancellor set priorities for the funds.
