MEDIA ADVISORY: Indiana University not connected with Arizona boycott
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 4, 2010
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- There have been incorrect reports in some media today (June 4) suggesting that Indiana University is in some fashion connected with a decision by elected officials of the city of Bloomington to boycott the state of Arizona.
The fact is that Indiana University, its trustees and its administration had absolutely no involvement whatsoever in this municipal action. The action applies only to the city of Bloomington and its municipal enterprises. Indiana University is not a part of city government and is not affected by this action.
Indiana University has contacted media that carried incorrect reports and requested that they be corrected.
