Statement from Indiana University East Chancellor Kathryn Cruz-Uribe

Thursday, October 31st

Indiana University East and Indiana University are currently reviewing recent concerns raised by former members of the IU East volleyball team regarding the head coach, who is on administrative leave.

I am personally taking this matter very seriously.  There is absolutely nothing more important to me in my role as chancellor than our students and their individual well-being. I want our students to know that those here – faculty, staff and administrators – care deeply about their experience whether in the classroom or through extracurricular activities. We pride ourselves on a student-centered culture at IU East, and any time there are concerns raised by students, we take them seriously and review them carefully.
