Dean's Council

The Dean's Council celebrates the generous donors who uplift our mission to prepare healers and transform health with annual giving of $2,500 or more to benefit Indiana University School of Medicine. For over 40 years, these donors have been our friends and partners, fueling innovative medical research and opening doors of opportunity for medical students across the state.

Our Dean's Council members support various areas of the school that are meaningful to them as individuals. Still, together, the generosity of the Dean's Council is making better health a reality for patients in Indiana and across the globe. We are honored to recognize the friendship and commitment of these donors through their Dean's Council membership and by sharing the impact of their generosity on medical research and education.

For over a century, IU School of Medicine has provided exceptional medical training for students who care for people across Indiana and around the world.
