Message from the Provost

We live in unprecedented modern times. We have asked the college deans to move all of ISU's face-to-face sections to distance-based learning, effective March 30, 2020. This is a monumental task for our faculty and our campus, but we will work together as a team to meet our objectives.

I want to share a quote from Winston Churchill, whose valiant effort to keep up the spirits of the western world during the darkest days of World War II--with Hitler’s Germany closing in on England--marked him as the kind of leader who could rise above the difficulty of the moment.  

Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.

Winston Churchill
