How do you learn the story of a university?

You talk to its people. Then you listen.

Each week, Through the Gates shines a light on the faculty, staff, students, administrators, alums and campus visitors who make Indiana University one of the most vibrant communities in the country.

We talk about research and projects. We celebrate achievements and milestones. We explore the ins, outs and roundabouts of everything from the chemistry of craft brewing to politics to “Breaking Bad.”

And we have fun doing it.
