Students aren’t the only new faces on campus this fall. As of today, 738 new faculty members are part of the Indiana University family.

Catherine Sherwood-Laughlin, clinical professor in the School of Public Health, IU Bloomington

Robert Rebein, professor and chair of the Department of English, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis
