Indiana University East will celebrate the second year of the “One Book, Many Voices” project when classes begin in August 2013. The project mission is to foster a campus and community discussion about themes and ideas inspired by a common text in an effort to develop camaraderie, inform knowledge, and inspire action towards positive civic engagement and improvement.
Indiana University East awarded five scholarships for the 2013 Summer Research Scholar Program. Undergraduate students receive $2,000 to conduct a research project under the supervision of a faculty mentor.
Funding for the program is provided by the Indiana University Office of the Vice Provost for Research and is matched by funds from IU East. The competitive program has expanded from the first single award given to now include up to six students each summer.
Indiana University East’s sixth chancellor began her first days on campus listening to students, faculty, staff and those in the community to develop a shared vision for the university. Chancellor Kathryn Cruz-Uribe officially started in her position Monday, July 1.
