In a semester-end address issued Monday, Indiana University President Michael A. McRobbie summarized a fall 2016 semester in which IU made additional strides in strengthening both Indiana’s economic vitality and the educational success of its citizens.
“Over the last several months, we have set new records at IU in, among other key areas, the number of IU graduates, the academic quality and diversity of our student body, external research funding, private philanthropic giving and innovation, all of which illustrate just how active and engaged IU students, faculty and staff continue to be year-round in their pursuit of excellence in and out of the classroom,” McRobbie said.
“All of these outstanding achievements reflect how Indiana’s flagship university continues to fulfill the promise of serving our state, which has proudly celebrated its bicentennial this year. Indeed, ours continues to be a strong and steadfast commitment to expanding and enriching the civic, cultural, social and economic life of Indiana and helping Hoosiers attain their goals and ambitions.”
