The end of a five-week intensive graduate
course in IU SPEA's Executive Education program, capped by a week
in Washington, D.C., ended suddenly for SPEA's Jim Buher and David
Reese Tuesday morning. The two were accompanying students from Crane
(Ind.) Naval Surface Warfare Center to a presentation at the Pentagon
when a hijacked plane struck the building. The group escaped unharmed,
navigating through darkness, dust and debris. They returned to Indiana
by bus Wednesday night.

IU Bloomington Chancellor Sharon Brehm called together the campus
community Thursday (Sept. 13) at the Fine Arts Plaza to express
sorrow and to emphasize IUís commitment to the safety and well-being
of all students, staff and faculty. Campuses throughout the state
planned similar observances, blood drives and supply drop-off sites.
Seeking emotional help
If you or a colleague are having a particularly
difficult time with the emotional aftershock of the terrorist hijackings,
consider contacting the IU Emergency Assistance Program. Trained
professional counselors are available by telephone 24 hours a day,
seven days a week, to support full-time appointed faculty and staff,
as well as household members, on all campuses of Indiana University.
The service is without cost and there are referral options to counselors
located close to individual campuses.
2001 College of the Year
Time magazine has named the
IU Bloomington campus one of its 2001 Colleges of the Year.

nurturing freshmen in that critical first year of study.
