Why I Give?

Nancy Newton“After joining the faculty of the School of Liberal Arts in 1973, I soon came to appreciate the life experience, seriousness of purpose, and intellectual strengths of many of the students attending our urban university, and I learned a great deal from them. IUPUI’s students often balance studies, work and parenting, and they bring maturity to their classrooms.

As a professor of Spanish at an inland campus located in the middle of our continent, I was aware of the need for perspective and a quality of experiential learning that are attainable only through study abroad. Over the course of my teaching career, I directed a year-long program in Madrid and a number of summer programs in Salamanca, Spain. From those experiences, I can bear witness to the growth in awareness and understanding — the gift of perspective! — that time spent living and studying abroad often engenders. The changes can be transformative in the best sense.

Yet, IUPUI’s students are unable to undertake study abroad without financial assistance. Given the opportunity, though, their experience will in turn richly benefit the quality of life and learning in our Midwestern state. These are the reasons I support a scholarship for study abroad expressly for them.”
