Research, both pure and applied, and creative activities are ongoing and essential
aspects of life on the campuses of Indiana University. The quality of instructional
education at any institution is tremendously enhanced if based upon and
continuously associated with research and creative inquiry. It is significant,
therefore, that the emphasis at IU not only is placed upon fundamental and basic
research but also is directed toward developmental activities designed to discover
those applications of research that characterize the efforts of many of our faculty in
the arts and sciences, as well as in the professional schools.
As an overview of the diverse and interesting programs of research, scholarship,
and creative activities conducted at Indiana University, Research &;Creative
Activity offers its readers an opportunity to become familiar with the professional
accomplishments of our distinguished faculty and graduate students. We hope the
articles that appear in Research &;Creative Activity continue to be intellectually
stimulating to readers and to make them more aware of the great diversity and
depth of the research and artistic creativity under way at Indiana University. A full
and exciting life is being created here, now and for the future. From our readers we
welcome suggestions for topics for future articles in Research &;Creative Activity
that will demonstrate further the scholarly activity at Indiana University.
