During the April meeting of the Indiana University Board of Trustees, IU Vice President for Engagement Bill Stephan summarized how the university impacts the state with economic development and innovation strategies.
“Indiana University’s engagement efforts support our mission to connect with all regions of the state and further develop the statewide economy and workforce,” Stephan said. “Throughout the state, we have advanced campus initiatives and engaged partners and organizations to strengthen and expand our positive influence, and it is inspiring to see the direct impact of IU on Hoosiers’ daily lives.”
Stephan also introduced the launch of the Statewide Impact website, which shows the university’s influence throughout the state’s 92 counties. The website also includes stories about graduates who are making an impact in their communities.
