Trustees approve new fee assessment for 2003-2004 school year
Last week, the IU Board of Trustees approved a plan for an assessment fee, in addition to regular annual tuition, for all incoming undergraduate students in academic year 2003-2004. Funds raised through the fee will go, in part, toward hiring new faculty and lowering the faculty-student ratios on the IU Bloomington campus, and hiring more full-time faculty and enhancing retention efforts at IUPUI and the regional campuses.


Ameritech Fellow proposals due in September
Since 1999, three rounds of funding and awards averaging $15,000 have made possible 24 innovative projects that span the IU campuses and represent such diverse topic areas as The Beatles’ music, surgical nursing, high-tech dentistry, electronic commerce, multi-cultural multimedia and Chinese language learning.

A room with a teraflop
Indiana and Purdue universities have linked their supercomputers, via the Hoosier state’s I-Light, to create the Indiana Virtual Machine Room, where a combined peak capacity of more than one trillion operations per second (also known as a teraflop) can be performed. The “room” will enable researchers to perform massive new calculations, including the simulation of "synthetic environments"-- applications that help to predict how millions of people might react to situations ranging from product marketing to natural disaster.

All that jazz
The IU Art Museum in Bloomington is hosting some “Cool Jazz for Hot Summer Nights” in July and some jazz of another sort from Henri Matisse. Best of all, all this jazz is free.
