IUSB dedicates Education & Arts Building


A big day for IU South Bend Wednesday.

The University dedicated the Education and Arts Building.

The $22 million renovation includes classrooms, an art gallery and computer labs.

The building also houses 19 dental hygiene clinic workstations.

The University and Contractor say it's an important step forward for education of students, and for the community.

"This building is a good example of adapting to growth. Trying to adapt to new technologies and offering our students and faculty the best education they can get," says IUSB Spokesperson, Ken Baierl.

Gibson-Lewis LLC did the work. The project manager, Todd Geer says, "Definitely provides a lot of jobs for a long period of time out in this area. It also took an eyesore of a building that was on the campus and turned it into a shining jewel."

A ceremony Wednesday also recognized Chancellor Una Mae Reck.

She's been at the post since 2002 and was the first female chancellor at IU South Bend.

Reck is stepping down in June.
