IU forms statewide engagement council

Representatives from each IU campus will participate in economic development discussions

INDIANAPOLIS -- As part of its "Innovate Indiana" initiative, Indiana University has established a university-wide engagement council composed of economic development representatives from IU's eight campuses and three engagement offices located throughout the state.

The newly created IU Council on Regional Engagement and Economic Development will be chaired by Bill Stephan, IU vice president for engagement. The purpose of the council is to create a university-wide forum to more effectively connect with all IU campuses and the communities they serve in addressing regional economic issues. Council members from IU campuses have been directly appointed by their respective chancellors.
