A casual collection of news and notices that remind us what an amazing place IU is.
IU Knowledge and Know-How Honored
IU Bloomington Professor Gary Hieftje received the 2010 Robert Boyle Prize for analytical science in November. The honor is a top chemistry prize in Britain and, arguably, the world. This productive scientist has authored or co-authored 10 books and more than 500 scientific papers. He holds 15 patents and has mentored 60 doctoral students. Congrats, Professor.
Cream & Crimson & Green
This past spring’s Cream & Crimson Spring Game scored points with the planet. IU replaced incandescent lightbulbs with energy-efficient bulbs to offset the game’s energy usage. Also, stadium attendees and tailgaters were offered recycling, thanks to bins donated by Coca-Cola. And a bicycle valet was available. Another dedicated team of Hoosiers—75 volunteers called the Cream & Crimson Green Team—led this environmental effort.
Profiting from Philanthropy
Through the Virtu Project, students from the IU Liberal Arts and Management Program oversee a portfolio with a selection of faux investments. The investments are backed by donors who give the “profits” to the Timmy Foundation. The foundation is dedicated to improving impoverished children’s access to health care and education around the world. The Virtu Project started in 2007—not the market’s best year—but donors ensured a good return for the foundation. This year, LAMP students presented $25,000 to the Timmy Foundation.
Home Court Advantage
By the end of 2010, the Honorable David F. Hamilton, judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, will move his chambers to the IU Maurer School of Law. Hamilton is an emeritus member of the school’s board of visitors and serves on the board of directors of the school’s Center for Constitutional Democracy. It’s a rare relationship for a school, but one that Hamilton hopes will create invaluable learning experiences.
Back to School
These days—with joblessness continuing to be an issue—more students are electing to return to school and begin work on a second career. But tuition can be an issue. That’s why scholarships are critical to help these students retool for the future. Want to help people throughout Indiana’s communities get back on their feet? Go to indiana.edu and search for continuing studies programs. You’ll find them on a campus near you.
