Office of the Chancellor

Chancellor Cruz-Uribe
Leader of the Pack

Welcome to Indiana University East. I am delighted to serve as the sixth
Chancellor of IU East, a regional campus of Indiana University based in Richmond,
Indiana, with centers in New Castle, Connersville, and Lawrenceburg, Indiana.

I began my tenure at IU East in July of 2013, and have enjoyed getting to know
the campus and the communities we serve. I spent my first several months at
IU East engaging in a “listening tour”—learning about our constituents’ hopes
and dreams for the future. This evolved into a more formal strategic planning
process, the results of which can be seen by clicking on the
Strategic Planning link on the left.

IU East is building on a firm basis of strong and meaningful community connections,
excellent teaching and learning, solid enrollment growth, innovation and a willingness
to experiment. I am excited about our bright future, and invite you to become involved
in IU East as we work to realize our vision to be recognized as a national model for
regional public colleges and universities.
