Herbert to discuss state of the university
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Indiana University President Adam W. Herbert will deliver his first State of the University address on Tuesday (Sept. 14) at 2:30 p.m. in the Frangipani Room of the Indiana Memorial Union on the IU Bloomington campus.
In the address, Herbert, who became IU's 17th president in August 2003, is expected to outline ways the university is "Strengthening the Foundations for Distinction" and to discuss the political and economic environment that will shape the near-term future of the institution.
He also is expected to provide an update on the initiatives outlined in his inaugural address in April. Those initiatives include clarifying the mission of each IU campus and the university as a whole and expanding the university's research enterprise, particularly in the life sciences and in the arts and humanities.
All members of the university community and the public are invited to attend the address.
The speech will be broadcast live to sites on all of IU's campuses: IU Bloomington, Education 2140; IU Columbus, Main 156H; IU East, Whitewater 137; IPFW, Kettler G20; IUPUI, University College B12; IU Kokomo, KO177; IU Northwest, Hawthorn 105; IU South Bend, Northside 038; IU Southeast, Hillside 105.
