I recently had the pleasure of visiting La Porte for the first time since I was installed as chancellor of Indiana University South Bend. I spoke to a group of leaders and shared the good news about how IU South Bend is serving your community.

I told them about how IU South Bend created $364.1 million for the regional economy in FY 2018-19, according to a recently released economic impact report. These dollars benefit the area by educating citizens, enriching arts and culture, enhancing policymaking, developing sustainable infrastructure, and promoting economic growth.

Susan Elrod is chancellor of Indiana University South Bend.
