IU-Notify, a new emergency communications system, has been implemented at Indiana University East.

Karen Clark, dean of Nursing at Indiana University East, has been named as a fellow for the Mid-America Public Health Leadership Institute. This fellowship is designed to promote organizational, professional and personal leadership skill development. MARPHLI fellows develop greater effectiveness in carrying out the core public health functions of assessment, policy development and assurance not only within their agencies, but also throughout the wider public health system in their community.
