Storytelling is one of the most important ways we connect as human beings. This practice is even more vital during the COVID-19 pandemic, as we keep physically distant from one another to stop the spread of this deadly virus. We have so many stories to tell in any year and this time is no different. This issue of Foundations is full of stories illustrating human connections we are making with each other and our community.

Alumni and Friends of IU South Bend,

Greetings and welcome to our updated Foundations site! This summer, or possibly even last fall, you may have been awaiting the arrival of your next issue of Foundations. I know waiting isn't easy, but good things are worth the wait. We’ve been busy taking this time to review and refocus Foundations to tell the stories you want to hear.
