Welcome back, Hoosiers. It’s a new decade, a new semester and a brand new staff once again here at the Indiana Daily Student.  

This semester, we’re focusing as much as possible on our readers. We want to find ways to provide a better IDS experience to the community and hopefully meet some more of you we've never talked to before.

Christine Fernando will be serving as a community liaison, working with different groups around campus and Bloomington to talk more about our coverage.

Two reporters, Joey Bowling and Ty Vinson, will be taking on new positions to expand our coverage in Bloomington and beyond with special funding from the Media School, though we remain independent from university oversight. We’ll provide more details soon, but feel free to start sending story ideas their way.

We also want to give you a closer look at how we create our content — including how we fact check, write headlines and choose the photos for each story. The IDS should be accessible to everyone, whether you’re visiting us for the first or thousandth time.

How we create and consume news is constantly changing, and the IDS wants to find the way that works best for all of us.

If you have questions about our initiatives — or anything at all, really — reach out to editor@idsnews.com (or my Twitter DMs), and let’s start a conversation.
