Support special initiatives and emerging needs

The Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education oversees programs and initiatives in support of outstanding academic experiences for all IU Bloomington undergraduate students. OVPUE is composed of 150+ staff members—working to ensure student success in a wide variety of ways. Those working on the front lines, directly with students and faculty, recognize the important work OVPUE provides, often with limited resources. With your participation in this campaign, you will directly enrich OVPUE initiatives—and the students and staff it supports each day.

The OVPUE fund provides a place where requests—that in the past have not been supported due to funding restrictions—are now considered. Over the years staff have noticed needs arise for emergency support, recognition events, and hospitality requests. However, OVPUE has not had significant unrestricted funds to help meet these needs and appropriately value the hard work of students and staff. Consider making a gift to build a fund that supports these needs—today and into the future.

A gift today will help OVPUE meet emerging needs as identified by its staff, including student engagement, staff recognition and enrichment, emergency support, and varied requests outside of operating budgets. Please make a gift to help us meet our goal of 50 donors in 2018.

Make a funding request

OVPUE directors can submit an application for support from the OVPUE fund by completing the request form and submitting it. Requests are considered once received. Please direct Funding request questions to vpueeng@indiana.edu.
