Fostering the liberal arts
IU has awarded 31 faculty members and collaborative groups research grants in the arts and humanities as part of an initiative announced by IU President Myles Brand during his State of the University address last October. The first-round grant monies awarded total nearly $900,000 in funds targeted for, but not limited to, professors in liberal studies fields.
Trustees preserve a 'natural lab'
IU’s trustees have set aside 446 acres of university-owned land near Bloomington that includes 185 acres of Griffy Woods and 261 acres along Lake Monroe. Both locations will serve as research and teaching preserves, providing a “natural laboratory” that won’t be jeopardized by future development.
IU goes to Washington
To strengthen IU’s efforts and presence
in Washington, D.C., Research and the University Graduate School,
along with the Office of the Vice President for Public Affairs and
Government Relations, monitor federal government activities that
influence operations at the university. Recently, IU President Myles
Brand and Bloomington Mayor John Fernandez led a delegation to Washington,
D.C., to meet with legislators and to seek continued support for
several university projects. Read about some of those projects in

It's more than slightly delicious, having deans and others that guide
your academic fate serve up some late night chow while studying for
finals. Kumble Subbaswamy (far left), dean of the IU College of Arts
and Sciences, Kathleen Matthies (center) of the Career Planning and
Placement Center and Joan Middendorf of the Teaching Resource Center
were among participants. At far right is Tamera Alexander of Indianapolis.
