Meslin slated to direct bioethics program for IU’s genomics initiative
Eric Meslin, executive director of the National Bioethics Advisory Commission, has been selected to guide IU’s bioethics program, filling an important role in the university’s development of the Indiana Genomics Initiative (INGEN), a world-class biomedical research initiative announced in December and made possible through a $105 million grant from Lilly Endowment Inc.

The awards are ‘CHOICE’ for ten IU Press titles
Ten titles published by the Indiana University Press last year have been designated Outstanding Academic Titles by CHOICE: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries, including a title co-edited by IU professor emerita Phyllis Klotman. The awards have particular significance because CHOICE is published by the Association of College and Research Libraries, a division of the American Library Association. The approximate 7,000 reviews by subject experts published each year aid academic, public and special libraries around the world in their acquisition decisions.

If music be the food of love...
The Beatles have been a staple of the young and young at heart for more than 40 years, and a new album, The Beatles 1, with an associated interactive Web site, indicate that all things old are new again. On today’s IU Home Pages’ “Conversations on line,” rock fan Jonathan Plucker, who teaches learning, cognition and instruction at the IU School of Education and is a recent recipient of a Mensa Education and Research Foundation prize for research related to human intelligence, chats with rock historian Glenn Gass. Gass is the author of the textbook A History of Rock Music and originated the nation’s first for-credit history of rock ‘n roll class at the IU School of Music. How does pop music have the power to convey emotion, express the inexplicable and defy time? Listen to this conversational duet and find out.

A concern for the ‘pedagogy of citizenship’ garners a future faculty member AAHC honors
If one thing in higher education is a given, it’s the realization that for every question answered, at least one more will present itself. Researchers, scholars and teachers continue to explore space, both real and virtual, marvel on creative genius, search the mysteries of human behavior and push the limits of physical science. So it follows that there had better be an abundant supply of fine future faculty in the making, the likes of D. Christopher Brooks, for instance, a doctoral student in political science at IU Bloomington who currently is teaching at IPFW. He is this year’s winner of the K. Patricia Cross Future Leaders Award from the American Association for Higher Education. Brooks discusses his thoughts and goals on pursuing a career in higher education.
