SOUTH BEND, Ind. - The South Bend Community School Corporation (SBCSC) has announced a partnership with Indiana University South Bend to provide career pathway opportunities for students enrolled in the exercise science program at Washington High School.

“This career pathway program demonstrates our commitment to equipping students with the tools they need for success in both college and the workforce,” said South Bend Schools Superintendent Dr. Todd Cummings. “Thank you to our staff and partners at IU South Bend for supporting innovative opportunities like these for our South Bend Schools students."

SBCSC says it's committed to preparing students with hands-on career education opportunities, particularly in the growing field of exercise science.

Through this partnership, Washington High School will offer college-credit education courses, taught by an IU South Bend faculty member, to qualified high school students, giving them the opportunity to start on an early-in pathway to higher education at IU South Bend.

"IU South Bend is dedicated to educating our next generation of health science professionals. Partnerships like this are critical to getting students interested in the field," said Dr. Jesús Garcia-Martinez, dean of the Dwyer College of Health Sciences.
