FORT WAYNE,Ind.—As part of its 100th Anniversary Celebration, Indiana University School of Nursing announced that IPFW Chancellor Vicky Carwein has been named as one of the first recipients of its Alumni Legacy Leaders award.

This award recognizes the outstanding contributions of 100 of the more than 30,000 IU School of Nursing living alumni. The recipients demonstrate exceptional contributions to nursing through education, clinical practice, leadership, and/or research. The breadth and depth of their contributions were considered in conjunction with the type of degree and the year in which it was awarded. A competitive submission and review process was used to select 100 extraordinary alumni for this award.

“We are extremely proud of our Top 100 Alumni Legacy Leaders. Their contributions have made a deep and lasting impact on the profession of nursing and in the healthcare system, continuing the tradition of excellence and leadership at Indiana University School of Nursing,” said Dean Marion Broome.

Carwein received both her bachelor's and D.N.S./Ph.D. in nursing from IU. She will be honored on June 21, 2014, as part of the 100th Anniversary Celebration Weekend. The Alumni Reunion and Top 100 Alumni Legacy Leaders Brunch is being held at the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown beginning at 10 a.m.
