Office of the Chancellor

Chancellor Mark Canada, Ph.D.

Since coming to Indiana University Kokomo in 2015, I have known this was a special place. During my time as Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, I enjoyed collaborating with my colleagues on the KEY and other initiatives designed to promote  student success.  Now, as Chancellor, I wish to continue that momentum and ensure that this is a destination campus where students, staff, and faculty thrive.

IU Kokomo is a truly extraordinary campus filled with dedicated, talented people deeply committed to serving students and our region.  I hope you will take a few minutes now to explore the pictures, videos, and articles here on our website to learn more about us and then, when you have a chance, visit us in person to meet some of our friendly people, see our beautiful campus, check out our state-of-the-art technology, and maybe even join us for a KEY experience or another campus event.

I look forward to seeing you at IU Kokomo!
