New Academic Directions
In the last 40 years, Indiana University has established only two new schools: the School of Public and Environmental Affairs, in 1971, and the School of Informatics, in 2000.
To ensure IU continues to provide students with a broad and deep education that prepares them for professional life and graduate study, President McRobbie announced the formation of the New Academic Directions committee.
New Academic Directions brings together administrative and academic leaders from IU Bloomington and IUPUI. Together, they will review and assess IU’s existing academic structures to ensure they are high-quality, efficient, effective, and aligned with IU’s teaching, research, and service missions.
A Broad Consensus
Committee members will seek the input of all the deans and schools at IU Bloomington, IUPUI, and the regional campuses. They will hear from administrators, faculty, students, staff, alumni, supports, and experts in higher education.
Their findings will be shared with President McRobbie on January 31, 2011.
