There was a time when Christine Deutscher, BA'16 thought she wasn’t “college material.” Though she did well academically in high school, the first-generation college student had a shaky start at IU Bloomington. After re-enrolling at IU South Bend, Christine thrived, meeting her goal to earn straight A’s and taking advantage of the high-impact practices IU South Bend offers.
To make productions more accessible, especially during the pandemic, the Ernestine M. Raclin School of the Arts partnered with WNIT to create Arts@IU South Bend. The WNIT program broadcasts a Raclin performance on two days and times each month on channels 34.1 and 34.2.
IU South Bend’s new strategic plan was finalized in late 2021, providing a map for the campus to thrive into the next five years and beyond. The Campus Directions Committee shepherded the creation of the plan throughout 2021 with input from members of the campus and the community.
