Indiana University East’s annual Moving On program for area youth will be held from July 22 to 28. Moving On is in its 17th year of providing a one-week summer camp for Richmond youth.
Last fall, Indiana University East began a learning community pilot program intended to better engage and retain newly enrolled first year students. Learning in Communities (LINC) exceeded expectations and will expand to include five learning communities for the fall 2007 semester. First year students enrolling for the fall are encouraged to join LINC.
Colleges and universities in East Central Indiana now have significantly greater access to very high-speed networking for collaboration, research, and education thanks to the expansion of I-Light, Indiana’s statewide higher education optical fiber network. Indiana University East is the newest institution on the I-Light network, joined by Earlham College and Purdue University College of Technology. Ivy Tech Community College in Richmond will join the network later.
