Why Give?

Indiana University School of Medicine—South Bend benefits greatly from the generosity of a strong and supportive community that includes contributions from alumni of the IU School of Medicine South Bend campus who have gone on to build medical practices in this area and throughout the country. Two major gifts—one from Ernestine Raclin, the other from Charles “Mike” Harper—enabled the region to realize the dream of a freestanding medical school and cancer research institute. Raclin-Carmichael and Harper Halls are named in their honor.

Through the annual Medicine Ball, physicians, health care administrators and representatives of the local business community have raised more than $2.2 million in scholarship money to support medical student tuition and expenses. Still, the need for continued financial support continues:

  • Scholarships: The South Bend campus has been able to provide a minimum of $5000 tuition support to third- and fourth-year students in good standing who show financial need. In addition, it awards a number of named four-year scholarships including those listed below.
  • Faculty Research With the opening of Harper Cancer Research Institute (HCRI) in Harper Hall in 2011, faculty of IU School of Medicine—South Bend and University of Notre Dame are engaging in collaborations designed to abbreviate the path from the research bench to the patient’s bedside. Generous financial support from donors help seed these collaborations and advance medical research.
