Going Barefoot

More than 10,000 IUPUI students, staff and faculty went barefoot last April 5, earning the campus the nod as the top supporter of the national Barefoot Challenge: One Day Without Shoes campaign. National designer and retailer TOMS® Shoes sponsored the event to raise awareness for shoeless children in third-world countries. IUPUI will host TOMS founder Blake Mycoskie in a personal appearance at a future date.
