In the classroom, students now have access to bone casts of human and animal species to study. Through the forensics course, a pig skeleton was buried on campus so that students could practice excavation and document findings.

Honoring an inspiring artist

Tom Thomas

Indiana University East has renamed The Gallery in Whitewater Hall in remembrance of Tom Thomas, artist, associate professor of fine arts and founder of the Whitewater Valley Art Competition (WVAC).
Thomas (1945-2009) taught fine arts to under-graduate students for over 30 years at IU East. He had an immense impact on his students and the campus, helping to develop the fine arts program and the WVAC, an annual art competition that attracts hundreds of artists for the unique experience of being juried by a nationally-known artist or curator who openly critiques all submitted entries before choosing the top works for the exhibit.
