Letter from President Godard

Welcome to Indiana State University!

I am thrilled to be stepping into the role of President of Indiana State University. I am honored to join the university, and excited about the opportunities in front of us.

Indiana State University is committed to embracing innovation and new ideas as catalysts for student success. Whether through cutting-edge research, study abroad experiences, or support for start-up ventures, we give students the tools they need to succeed as they face the challenges and opportunities ahead.

As we look toward the future, let’s not forget our roots. Terre Haute and Indiana State University have a rich history and heritage, and I’m deeply committed to preserving and strengthening that relationship. As Sycamores, it’s our collective responsibility to honor and fortify this partnership through collaborative initiatives, community outreach, and mutual support. Together, we will ensure Terre Haute, and the Wabash Valley continue flourishing.

Academic excellence is at the core of what we do. Indiana State University is dedicated to maintaining and enhancing the quality of education across all disciplines and programs. I’ve been so impressed by the academic rigor, intellectual curiosity, and lifelong learning that permeates our campus. Let’s show everyone what Indiana State University is made of and lead the way in education, not just in Indiana but across the Midwest.

Indiana State University is more than a university; we are a destination. Our dynamic campus environment nurtures personal growth, celebrates diversity, and promotes global citizenship. Indiana State is a place where dreams are realized, where futures are formed, and where every individual can thrive.

As we March On, I am eager to collaborate with our faculty, staff, and students. I invite you to join me and our campus leaders as we work together to shape the future of higher education in Indiana.

I want to express a heartfelt thank you to every Indiana State University community member. Your unwavering support and dedication to the institution, as well as to my family and me, is truly humbling. It is a great honor to serve as your President, and I am looking forward to celebrating the remarkable achievements we will accomplish together.

If you have any questions, suggestions, or would like to contact me, please feel free to do so at I look forward to seeing you on campus!

Go Sycamores!
