President McRobbie's 2015 State of the University Address
Indiana University President Michael A. McRobbie will present the annual State of the University address at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 6, on the Indiana University Bloomington campus.
In keeping with the Faculty Constitution and IU tradition, the University Faculty Council invites the president each year to report on the state of the university. During the address, McRobbie is expected to discuss the university's accomplishments and goals as outlined in the Bicentennial Strategic Plan, approved by the IU trustees in December 2014; and the recently launched For All: The Indiana University Bicentennial Campaign.
McRobbie became the 18th president of Indiana University on July 1, 2007. He joined the university in 1997 as vice president for information technology and chief information officer, and was appointed vice president for research in 2003. He was named interim provost and vice president for academic affairs for IU's Bloomington campus in 2006, and became president the following year. As president, McRobbie has refocused IU around six Principles of Excellence: an excellent education, world-class research and scholarship, an outstanding faculty, enhanced international engagement, excellence in health sciences, and engagement.
