Study room dedicated to alumna

Barbara and Dick Domek

One of the study rooms in the renovated Education Library has been named for alumna Barbara Domek thanks to a gift from her and her husband.

Domek is a two-time IU School of Education graduate. She received her bachelor’s in elementary education in 1971 and her master’s in elementary education in 1973. Her teaching career spans 19 years and includes working as an instructional aide, teacher, and reading specialist. Since the majority of Barbara’s career was centered around reading literacy, she understands the importance of a space like the Education Library. She hopes current and future students will appreciate and take advantage of the resources available in the new space.

We are grateful to Barbara Domek and her husband, Dick Domek, a three-time IU Jacobs School of Music graduate, for their gift to the IU School of Education.
