“Realizing the Dream”: Celebrating First-Generation College Students

“Realizing the Dream”:  Celebrating First-Generation College Students

INDIANAPOLIS, November 1, 2017 – Realizing a dream takes commitment, hard work, and, most often, a helping hand from family and others.  And that’s exactly what 30 students from Indiana’s private, non-profit colleges and universities are being celebrated for this Saturday evening, November 4, at the 28th annual “Realizing the Dream” banquet.

Now sophomores, they have realized the dream of being the first in their families to go to college, have been selected by their colleges for outstanding achievement in the freshman year, and are successfully advancing towards completing their bachelor’s degrees.

Made possible by a grant from Lilly Endowment Inc. to the Independent Colleges of Indiana, the event recognizes first-generation students attending ICI campuses, along with their inspirational teachers and families.  The event is being held at the Sheraton Indianapolis at Keystone Crossing, with a reception at 6:00 p.m. and an awards dinner at 7:00 p.m.

Each honored student will receive a $2,500 check to help with college costs, and each student’s selected “most influential” teacher/mentor will receive a $1,000 professional development grant.  One out of every three students on ICI campuses is first-generation. Generous financial aid provided by the campuses themselves, combined with state and federal grants, makes a private college education a possibility for all students in Indiana.

Our keynote speaker for the evening is Valparaiso University alumna Emily Trimble, who manages Tech Point’s Indy Women in Tech program, inspiring women and female students of all ages to pursue opportunities in the technology field.  As part of her role, Emily works to educate employers about the process and needs of potential candidates and serves as a coach and connector between Indy Women in Tech members and potential employers, mentors, and other valuable supporting partners.  Prior to joining Tech Point, she served as campus director for The Iron Yard, a coding school, and as a tech talent recruiter with Vitamin T.

“We are so grateful to the Lilly Endowment for making this inspirational program possible,” says David W. Wantz, ICI president & CEO.  “We are proud, too, that because of the higher graduation rates of our ICI colleges and universities, these students are significantly more likely to realize the dream of completing their degrees in four years.”

ICI Students Stress Importance of Need-Based Financial Aid at State House

Posted by

INDIANAPOLIS, February 7, 2017– Students from Indiana’s private, non-profit colleges and universities want to deliver three messages in person at the State House on Tuesday, February 7: sincere thanks for the legislators’ ongoing commitment to state need-based financial aid for students; the urgent need for their continued support of this program; and the critical importance of increasing the number of Hoosiers with bachelor’s degrees to Indiana’s economy.

In this first of two student lobby days coordinated by Independent Colleges of Indiana, twelve schools will participate: Anderson University, Butler University, DePauw University, Earlham College, Hanover College, Indiana Wesleyan University, Marian University, Martin University, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College, Taylor University, University of Indianapolis.  Students from other ICI campuses will visit the State House on April 4th.   

Students will gather first at the Indiana History Center, 450 W. Ohio Street, at 10:30 a.m.  Before walking to the State House at noon to meet with their hometown legislators, the students will be briefed by ICI President Richard Ludwick on current legislative issues involving state-funded need-based student aid.  

Indiana’s independent colleges and universities are a smart investment for students and the state, with the highest 4-year graduation rate of all sectors of higher education in Indiana, costing the state less per degree because the campuses themselves receive no state funding, and contributing $5.1B in total economic impact around the state.

“Our goal is not only to raise awareness in the legislature of the importance of state financial aid--to put students’ names and faces on the state funds they appropriate--but also to introduce our students to how the legislative process works, how it affects their lives and futures, and how they can play a role in shaping its direction,” says Ludwick.
