Did you know that the Well House at IUB is shaped like a Beta Theta Pi
fraternity pin; that the ivy covering the Kirkwood Observatory grew from
a sprig brought back from Westminster Abbey; that the Bloomington campus
maintains the "Fort Knox of fruit flys," that IU School of Medicine
physiologist Wiltz Wagner has literally taken "pigs in space" aboard a
NASA KC-135 (aka the Vomit Comet) to study theories of pulmonary blood
flow; that Swingshift College, designed to meet the needs of shift
workers, is located at IU Northwest? Check out this column each week
and learn something about IU you didn't know before.
Knowledge transfer: In this new Home Pages on-line column, employees
and supervisors are invited to send in comments about problems they
have encountered in their own work environments and the solutions
they have innovated. Will these solutions transfer to other campuses
around the state? We hope so. And we'd also like to use this column
to salute employee excellence. Send your E-mail kudos to an IU employee
you know who has gone above and beyond the call of duty to: firstname.lastname@example.org
