Fans rush from the stands and fill the court of Assembly Hall after junior forward Christian Watford made a field goal in the final seconds of the game to give the Hoosiers a 1-point win against the Kentucky Wildcats.
Hoosiers stun No. 1 Kentucky Wildcats, win 73-72 BY STEPHANIE KUZYDYM firstname.lastname@example.org
The final shot arced toward the basket, and time stopped. As he watched the ball, junior forward Christian Watford kept his right hand in the air. The fans stood with their hands raised, holding their breath. The five red banners softly swayed. Then, the sound of pure swish echoed. The golden numbers lit 0.0. Across Assembly Hall, the wave of emotion released. A decade of pent up frustration was freed onto Branch McCracken court. Since 2001, after former IU Coach Bob Knight was fired, Indiana has been roaming a desert in search of respectability. IU Coach Tom Crean’s first three years brought the worst season records to Assembly Hall in its history. On Dec. 10, the Hoosiers found paradise. An uproar filled the rafters. The IU men’s basketball team celebrated in a pile. The faithful stormed
the court. “This is Indiana. This is Indiana,” fans shouted as they swarmed past black-shirted security guards. A guard threw both his hands up like stop signs toward the rushing crowd. They couldn’t even be slowed. Fans sprinted. Some tripped and fell. Some were even trampled. Members of the Big Red Basketball Band’s first instinct was to protect their instruments from the chaos. They lifted their trombones and trumpets above their heads before dropping them to their mouths to play the fight song. “We’re No. 1,” a fan shouted. “No. 1, baby.” Fans in the general admission seats became restless to join the party at center court. They began jumping over the cinder block walls, using the scoreboard as a ladder rung. More fans spilled over the edge. Policemen stood on the wood bleachers with their hands extended, catching fans as they jumped and sprinted the second their foot
touched the wood. “Careful,” one officer said. “Here you go.” Once they hit the court, they slammed into one another in jubilation. Fans poured across all avenues of the hall. A mother stood protecting her two young children, their eyes wide at the sight of what college basketball means to Bloomington.Gray-haired men shouted. Friends hugged. Fans high-fived. “We did it,” a Hoosier alumna cheered before kissing her husband. “We’re back.” The victory brought back an old feeling. Saturday night brought back the faith that Butler basketball isn’t what the state of Indiana should be known for. This is Indiana basketball. It’s the five banners. It’s Martha the Mop Lady. It’s the costumes and the candy stripes. It’s the tradition. After inheriting a program in shambles, Crean had now become the shepherd. At the edge of the court, the coach watched as the floor disappeared beneath a red sea.

Community searches for Provost Hanson leaves IU for Minnesota missing IU sophomore BY KOURTNEY LIEPELT email@example.com
BY CJ LOTZ firstname.lastname@example.org
Lauren Spierer, a 20-year-old IU student, has been missing since Friday, June 3, 2011. The Bloomington Police Department, family, friends and local residents continue to search for her. Spierer is 4 feet 11 inches tall, weighs between 90 and 100 pounds and has blue eyes and blonde hair just below the shoulder, according to fliers posted throughout Bloomington. She is from Westchester County near Scarsdale, N.Y. and just finished her sophomore year at IU. Spierer studies fashion merchandising and is a University Division scholar. She planned to stay in Bloomington for part of last summer to take a course at Ivy Tech Community College before starting an internship at the clothing store Anthropologie in New York City. Her parents and older sister live in New York. Spierer was last seen walking south on College Avenue. She had been hanging out with friends at Kilroy’s Sports Bar. The bar features a sand and beach area, which may explain why she was seen walking away with no shoes, her mother Charlene Spierer said. She was wearing a white tank top, a loose, light-colored button shirt and full-length black stretch pants. Spierer’s apartment is only a block and a half away from Kilroy’s Sports, and the last place she was seen, the

IU Bloomington Provost and Executive Vice President Karen Hanson delivers a speech at a farewell event Jan. 12 in the IU Auditorium. Hanson is leaving IU to take a job as vice president for academic affairs and provost of the University of Minnesota.
Karen Hanson, IU-Bloomington’s provost and executive vice president, left IU on Feb. 1 for a position at the University of Minnesota. On Oct. 10, 2011, U of M President Eric Kaler named Hanson as the university’s new senior vice president for academic affairs and provost. “We know she’ll be a loss for Indiana, but we’re just very happy she saw an opportunity to come to Minnesota and contribute on our journey to excellence,” said Tim Mulcahy, U of M’s vice president for research and the chairman of the provost search committee. The search for U of M’s new provost began in the summer, after current Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost Tom Sullivan announced his plan to retire at the end of the 2011 calendar year. Since Hanson and many of her family members attended U of M, she said she found the opportunity to apply too interesting to overlook. “It was the campus I grew up on,” she said. “It’s my home state, and it’s a great university with an enormous array of resources and a lot of interesting opportunities, so it was too interesting to pass by.” After the search committee reviewed materials of and compared their information to the goals, traditions and aspirations of U of M, the group interviewed 16 individuals, Mulcahy said.

Marching Hundred plays for Super Bowl audience MATTHEW GLOWICKI email@example.com
Twenty hours before they would be performing before an audience of more than 60,000 screaming football fans, the IU Marching Hundred played for a smaller crowd of teachers, friends and family. The marching band practiced Feb. 5 for the second time in preparation for their pre-game Super Bowl XLVI performance in Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. This practice, however, was marked by the presence of many of their family members and a new sense of excitement on Super Bowl-eve. A whistle cut the noise in IU’s John Mellencamp Pavillion. The chatter fell silent. Friends and family moved toward the 50-yard line. Band members moved into formation and began testing their instruments. Choppy grunts of tubas and the nervous tapping of drums started to fill the pavilion. Some band members donned wide, toothy smiles. Others looked like they were just trying to hold down their dinner. “Trombones have the most distance to cover,” David Woodley, director of the Marching Hundred, said to the group. “Can you do that?” A definitive “yes” rose from the trombone players, and practice continued. “R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A.” by John Mellencamp started to play as band members kicked off their dress rehearsal. It marked the second time the Marching Hundred had played together since the last home football game in the fall. Parents with iPads, cellphones and cameras tried to keep their eyes on their sons and daughters. They tapped their toes and swayed from side to side with the beat of the music. Dawn Ellenson, camera in hand, looked eagerly into the crowd. She was looking for her daughter, Rachel, among the sea of red. “Oh my goodness, there she is,” she said with a smile,

5 arrested at protest BY MARK KEIERLEBER
firstname.lastname@example.org IU Police arrested five protesters in the Kelley School of Business on Nov. 29, 2011 after protests at a presentation from JPMorgan, a banking and investment corporation. A group of protesters blocked the door to the Cohort Classroom, Room 1050 in the Godfrey Graduate and Executive Education Center, where bank executives were recruiting business students. Sitting cross-legged on the floor in front of the room’s door, protesters blocked anyone from entering the room.
When police arrived at the scene, they advised the protesters in a calm voice to move from the door or they would be arrested for trespassing. After the threat of arrest, most of the protesters sitting in front of the door moved away but continued to protest in the surrounding hallway and stairwell. However, three protesters remained, silent. After several additional warnings of arrest, police grabbed the three protesters — one female and two males — and pulled apart their linked arms. The female protester was rolled onto her
stomach and officers locked her wrists with handcuffs. Throughout the first wave of arrests, protesters yelled at the police, “Shame on you.” The three were removed from the building, and the female’s legs hovered above the ground as police carried her out. One protester waved a sign reading, “Not on our campus.” Directly following the removal of the three protesters, two more male protesters sat cross-legged in front of the door, linking arms.

RPS moves forward on new dorm construction BY JESSICA WILLIAMS email@example.com
What’s all that noise? Two related construction projects are underway on campus along Third Street, all in an effort to improve the living experience in the Southeast Neighborhood. On South Rose Avenue, a new apartment complex is being built for Residential Programs and Services to replace the housing lost when the University West Apartments were torn down at Jordan Avenue to make way for another project. The Jacobs School of Music is constructing an addition for faculty and practice space on that ground. A second RPS project — a new dorm — is in the design phase. STUDIO APARTMENTS The complex, next
Willkie Quad, will open in fall 2012, said Director of RPS Patrick Connor. It will have 102 studio-style beds. The apartments are for any student after their freshman year, including master’s and doctoral students. Connor said RPS thought it was important to replace housing lost by the music school construction because many students in University West were music students and close to their instruction and practice at the school. “It could be their home for four, five, six years,” Connor said. The site was selected early last spring, he said. “We know that for the apartment building, there was a lot of unhappiness when we had to inform students the University West Apartments were going to be torn down,” Connor said.
RYAN DORGAN | IDS
Construction continues at the former site of University Apartments West at the northeast corner of Third Street and Jordan Avenue. The site will house the new Jacobs School of Music Faculty Studio Building, which will provide seminar rooms, administrative offices, graduate student spaces and lounges for music students.
The apartment building will also serve non-traditional students and provide them with ease of access to campus amenities. NEW DORM The second project was being designed, and RPS planned to break ground
around March. The dorm will be a 440-bed residence hall at Rose and Jones avenues, also near Willkie Quad. That site was selected by the University as the most effective location for the new dorm, Connor said. The dorm would provide higher levels of privacy, and
50 students would not have to share restrooms as is typical in the traditional dorms, he said. The dorm’s structure is on a smaller scale and more conducive to building community, as it will only be four or five stories as opposed to a high-rise building, he said.
UPCOMING PROJECTS RPS plans to roll out a new dining facility in 2013. The project includes gutting the center building of Forest Quad and reopening the dining hall it once housed. A majority of the facilities in Read Center would transition to Forest.
Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright gives Themester talk BY HANNAH SMITH firstname.lastname@example.org
Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright gave a talk Nov. 2, 2011, at the IU Auditorium. Albright’s name recognition is part of the reason that junior Jacque EmordNetzley came with friends to see Albright. “Madeleine Albright is an intelligent, powerful woman, and it’s nice to see that in comparison to, I don’t know, Michele Bachmann,” EmordNetzley said. “It seems like a lot of women in the media
are not the kind I want to look up to.” Albright came to speak about the topic of the fall’s Themester, “Making War, Making Peace.” George Thomas, a junior and the Union Board lectures director, helped select Albright as the speaker. “We just thought that she had great name recognition, and she’s still on the world stage,” Thomas said. “She’s very relatable to the theme.” She is most well known for becoming the first female secretary of state for former President Bill Clinton’s
administration — the highest-ranking U.S. government position a female received at that time. She served as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, and she continues to serve on various political committees dedicated to international affairs and relations. Emord-Netzley said she hoped to hear Albright’s opinions on the current state of America. “I know no one can have a solution — but just her outlook on how things are going,” she said. The event drew older
people from the community as well as students. Thomas introduced Albright, and she walked onstage to raucous applause. “Thank you, George, for introducing me,” she said jokingly, “because not everyone always knows who I am.” During her speech, Albright gave an account of her personal life, detailing her move from Czechoslovakia to America, recalling tales of her mother, who didn’t understand the concept of sleepovers, and how her father followed behind her during the entirety of her
first date. She then talked about being sworn in as the first female secretary of state and the sense of responsibility she felt. “It looks today like we will never again have a secretary of state who’s a man,” she said, to much applause. From here, she spoke about more current events, such as conflicts in the Middle East and famine and war in the horn of Africa. She also spoke of budget cuts at the federal level and the budget cuts IU is facing. She warned against cutting

Kappa Alpha Psi returns home for large centennial celebration
CONTINUED FROM PAGE A3 for the United States to understand opposing viewpoints both domestically and globally. “Instead of only listening to the opinions of those who make you the most comfortable, study those that make you the most upset,” Albright said. After her speech, Albright answered questions from the audience, covering topics
government officials who were members of the Ku Klux Klan. When the 50th anniversary arrived, the country was still segregated. Now, as the members honor the 100 years that have passed since the founders created Kappa Alpha Psi, discrimination still exists, albeit often in a sneaky, more subtle form. “This is a time to celebrate but also a time to accept these challenges that still exist,” Kruzan said. Also during the celebration, the Creating Inspiration Award was given to IU and Kappa alumnus George Taliaferro, the first AfricanAmerican drafted by the NFL. During his time at IU, Taliaferro fought to desegregate the swimming facilities here. Kappa Alpha Psi Grand Polemarch Dwayne Murray, before presenting the award to Taliaferro, told the crowd he had visited the first chapter house earlier and sat down on its steps. “I tried to imagine what the conversations there were like,” Murray said, “Conversations about the opportunities other students had that weren’t afforded to them, like signing up for certain classes, playing contact sports or using the same swimming pool.” IU, the fraternity and the country have come a long way in those 100 years, he said. “We’ve moved from just thinking of going to the White House to sitting down with the president of the United States and talking about change,” Murray said. “But, I tell you, my brothers, the best days are yet to come.” Brotherhood and strength in the fraternity was as constant for the centennial celebration, Macon said, and will continue to be in the future. “To see all those Kappas in Bloomington, to go from just 10 to thousands of brothers, is a really beautiful thing,” Macon said. “We will continue to grow and inspire young men to live their dreams.”
such as the Arab Spring, the U.S. military budget, immigration and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. When asked how to solve bipartisan struggles in the nation, she answered simply, “I have no idea,” to laughter and applause. However, she moved on to a more serious discussion of her struggles with bipartisanism while working for the government. She said she hopes Americans’ current discontent will convince the two parties to
work together. To end her lecture, Albright spoke once more about what it was like to be the first woman secretary of state and the recognition she still receives for it. She told a story about her 7-year-old granddaughter and a question she asked her mother on her last birthday. “‘What’s the big deal about Grandma Maddie being secretary of state?’” Albright said, quoting her granddaughter. “‘Only girls are secretary of state.’”

In 1911, surrounded by racism and segregation, 10 men founded the first historically black fraternity at IU — one of the first of its kind in the country. One hundred years later, thousands of men and their families came to Indiana to celebrate the fraternity’s centennial from July 2 through July 10, 2011. As part of the celebration, members of Kappa Alpha Psi met in Indianapolis for the fraternity’s 80th Grand Chapter Meeting last summer, and nearly 4,000 of the members arrived by 60 buses in Bloomington June 7, 2011, to see where it all began. “This was a matter of trying to reconnect with the founders,” said Evelyn C. Robertson Jr., a Kappa who graduated from Tennessee State in 1962. “The path they traveled was very different than the direction of the fraternity today. This was about connecting to the past, appreciating the adversity and sacrifice.” Elder Watson Diggs and nine other black IU students founded Kappa Alpha Psi on Jan. 5, 1911, and created a constitution as well as bylaws that have never excluded a man from membership because of color, creed or national origin. It became the second historically black fraternity incorporated as a national organization and the first national fraternity to be founded at IU. Polemarch of Alpha Chapter at IU, senior Aaron Barnes, said the pilgrimage helped put the historical and national significance of the fraternity into perspective. “This is a great moment of reverence for myself and my brothers,” Barnes said. “We are a reflection of our founders. It’s something we take for granted living here in Bloomington with Alpha Chapter.”
Those visiting IU for the centennial did not take the city for granted, IU Senior Vice Polemarch David Macon said. They visited various historical sites, including the first chapter house, a church where the founders frequently gathered and Jordan River in Dunn Meadow. Jordan River is a significant landmark in Kappa Alpha Psi’s history, with references being made to it in Kappa songs. A plaque celebrating the fraternity was unveiled there during the pilgrimage. In addition, another plaque on Kirkwood Avenue as well as a bench at People’s Park were unveiled. Macon, who was one of the tour guides for this “Kappa Trail,” said it was a way to pay homage to the founders and what they went through. “I saw people actually crying to be able to see and be where the founders walked and went to class,” he said. “It was a sharing experience that brought us together.” BJ Grimes, National PanHellenic Council president, said it’s significant that IU is home to the Kappa Alpha Psi Alpha Chapter. “For IU, it’s great to have a continuous black organization,” said Grimes, a senior majoring in pre-med. “It shows how our campus has grown. It’s kind of the mecca of the fraternity. Bloomington gets talked about a lot in the fraternity.” In addition to the “Kappa Trail,” a celebration was also organized at Dunn Meadow for the pilgrimage. At the gathering, Bloomington Mayor Mark Kruzan officially declared July 7, 2011, as Kappa Alpha Psi Day in the city. “Today is a historic day itself,” Kruzan said. He went on to recap the adversity the fraternity has faced in its home state throughout the past century. When the fraternity celebrated its 25th anniversary, he said, Indiana still had

They immediately contacted the Bloomington Police Department, filed a report and started printing fliers with their daughter’s smiling picture. The police department told her parents they had custody of their daughter’s phone and wallet. There were conflicting reports stating the items were found in either her friend’s house or the bar. The Spierers stayed at a downtown hotel Saturday night. At 10 a.m. on Sunday morning, a search group of about 20 friends and Bloomington residents met outside Smallwood Plaza. Robert and Charlene handed everyone fliers and tape, then split volunteers into groups to search around lakes Monroe, Griffy and Lemon. Others drove throughout Bloomington, hanging up
ready to cut the ribbon in celebration of the newly renovated GLBT office at the Rainbow Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony on Sept. 16, 2011. Students and community members were invited to take a tour of the first-floor renovations, which took place between November 2010 and April 2011. IU paid for the renovations, but the all-new furnishings were purchased with alumni donations. IU was one of only a dozen or so universities to have a GLBT support office when it opened in 1994, Bauder said. The office was created based on a recommendation
from a commission formed to see how IU could be more GLBT-friendly. Brand, widow of former president Myles Brand, said funding the office was a “nobrainer” for her husband and was one of his great successes. While students criticized the then-president for switching funding to create the office, the community was generally supportive when it opened. However, he received many negative letters from state legislators, with one calling support of a gay center “political suicide,” Gros Louis said. “We were told it wasn’t just
a few legislators in the statehouse, but people on both sides of the house were afraid if they endorsed this or spoke in favor of this, they would lose their seats,” said Bauder, who has been coordinating the office since it opened 17 years ago. “To the president, and the dean, and the chancellor’s credit, they saw this as a human issue.” The GLBT office opened the same year Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, the government policy banning openly gay, lesbian and bisexual people from serving in the military, took effect.

Their daughter, piccolo player Brittany Tempest, was treating the performance just like any other. “We’ve marched for the Colts before, so it feels kind of routine, but I’m sure once I get down under Lucas Oil I’ll be more nervous,” Brittany said. As the band rearranged themselves for another run through of “Sing Sing Sing (With a Swing),” Brittany’s parents whipped out their phones for a quick check of the IU-Purdue game. The two said they were pretty wound up about Brittany’s Super Bowl appearance. “We just love this kind of
thing,” Brian said. “We come to everything for the Hundred if we can. We’re typical band parents.” Leading Brittany, Rachel and the rest of the Marching Hundred was drum major Tiffany Galus, who graduated in December. After thinking the final football home game against Purdue would be Tiffany’s last performance with the Marching Hundred, Galus’ family all came down for the game. With the Super Bowl, she’s getting an encore. “It’s very bittersweet,” she said. “Going into rehearsal today, I had that little lump in my throat that this is really the last time, but there is really no better way to go out than the Super Bowl.” After practice drew to a close, Galus assessed the
performance of the band. “As of tonight, the show looked great,” she said. “The energy was great. We have a lot of fun on the field, and we look good doing it.” David Woodley was similarly pleased with the rehearsals. The band had to perfectly time their performance to fill six minutes — no more, no less. “I think that the students are all smart kids, and the staff have worked really hard to get everyone ready,” he said. “I think we’ve done about as well as we can do. I have no concerns about tomorrow. At this point, if anything goes wrong, it’s something we could not predict.” One of the last to leave the practice field, Galus said she is proud of her fellow band members.
posters at businesses and handing out fliers. The Spierers said BPD forces had already combed through nearby construction sites, apartment complexes and streets. The Spierers themselves had spent all day Saturday searching the blocks around Smallwood and Kilroy’s Sports. Charlene said Lauren suffers from Long QT syndrome, a heart condition that sometimes requires medicine. Charlene said this condition makes it all the more important that anyone with information come forward, in case Lauren is somewhere she could not receive medical attention. Friends of the Spierers also created a Facebook account, “Lauren Spierer Missing” and a Twitter handle, @NewsOnLaurenS for anyone who wants to give or receive more information.
vestigating a possible connection between the June 3, 2011, disappearance of Spierer and Clyde Gibson of New Albany, Ind., who is accused of killing three women,. “A detective from the Bloomington Police Department has been assigned to make an inquiry with investigators in New Albany regarding the Clyde Gibson case they are investigating,” BPD Captain Joe Qualters said. BPD indicated they had no specific reason to think that the two cases were necessarily connected, but that detectives are “certainly interested in anyone who comes to the attention of law enforcement for targeting women as victims. That is the sole purpose for the inquiry.” Gibson has a history of targeting women as victims and is a registered sex offender. In late April, police found the body of a missing woman buried in his yard. He is also accused in the murders of two other women.

ceremony took place just four days before the policy’s repeal date, Sept. 20. Offices like GLBT SSS, openly gay celebrities and the increasing amount of people with GLBT friends or family members in the past 20 years have helped to make the issue of gay rights personal, Bauder said. “Poll the legislature in Indianapolis, and I’m sure they are much more conservative than the general population,” Bauder said. “Our state legislators — most of who I think are white men, probably in their 40s or 50s — just don’t get this issue the way people of (this)
generation do.” Now that the renovations are complete, Bauder and the GLBT office plan to work on outreach programs to support GLBT students in Indiana high schools. Nine out of 10 GLBT teens still face harassment at school, according to a 2009 study by the Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network. “While we have a relatively gay-friendly campus, there are kids who come to this school having experienced a lot of harassment,” Bauder said. “There are still a lot of people who are intolerant and school policies (that) let that go.”

“My friends and family and, really, the whole IU community has been really supportive,” Galus said. “It just seems like they’re really supportive for the Hundred
to have this opportunity. It’s something that the Hundred has really deserved for a long time. It’s finally happening. All the hard work has paid-off.”

CONTINUED FROM PAGE A2 lice threatened their arrest. The scene intensified as the two protesters were also arrested and removed from their spot in front of the door. Shortly after their removal, several police stood in front of the door to prevent more protesters from squatting there. Although the protesters were not directly representing Occupy Bloomington or Occupy IU, senior Justinian Dispenza said the protest was organized in solidarity with the Occupy movement. Dispenza was designated as the group’s media liaison. He said the purpose of the protest was a direct action against JPMorgan-Chase. The five protesters were “arrested for blocking the entrance to a room after being asked numerous times to stop blocking the entrance or be arrested for trespass,” IUPD Chief Keith Cash said in an email. “The others were not arrested as they were peaceful and not blocking people from entering the room.” After protesters were arrested, Dispenza recited prepared statements from those arrested. Upon the protester’s arrival they had struggled to locate the specific location of the meeting because it had been moved. But the location was quickly found after the protesters broke into small groups to search. At first, six officers arrived to the scene. But then it multiplied to 12, then 13. Police told protesters they would have to vacate the building if they were not students or employees of the University. “JPMorgan, feel free to

leave,” protesters chanted. The commotion eventually escalated from just in front of the door to down the hallway and to the building’s front entrance. At one point, several protesters were allegedly pushed by a man in a gray suit. The man was later identified as IUPD Detective Greg McClure. “Do you treat your wife this way?” protesters yelled at McClure. Following McClure around the building, protesters demanded to know why “peaceful protesters” were being arrested when McClure was not being arrested for “assault.” Student Rachel Geiger was one of three students claiming she was assaulted by McClure. Although she said she was not planning to press charges without first consulting with the other people allegedly assaulted, she showed a small bruise above her right elbow. Protesters moved back in front of the door where their protest originally began. Sitting on the floor in the middle of the hallway, three students told police they could not legally be arrested for
sitting peacefully in a hallway. One officer objected. He told the protesters they were a fire hazard. They moved. Sophomore Paul Gillette, who tried to attend the JPMorgan presentation, said he hopes to pursue a career in investment banking after graduating. He was walking to Kelley when he noticed police cars parked outside with their lights on. He said he did not think anything of the police as he walked inside toward the presentation. He said police were blocking the door, and he was unable to get inside. He was disappointed that he was unable to attend, and after sticking around for only a few minutes, he walked back home. “I was very disappointed that the event was canceled,” Gillette said. “JPMorgan and other banks that make the trip from New York to Bloomington invest a lot of time, money and other resources recruiting the incredible talent that the Kelley school has to offer. What the protesters don’t realize is that they ruined the presentation for all of the hard-working students attending the event.”
said. “We really believe that she is the total package, and she’s really going to help us take the next steps that we’ve laid out for ourselves for this institution.” Hanson has served at IU for 35 years and has been the provost and executive vice president since 2007. IU President Michael McRobbie released a statement expressing his gratitude
for her time at IU. “The University of Minnesota is an outstanding institution, and I understand the undeniable appeal of returning to one’s alma mater in a key leadership position,” McRobbie said. “I have every confidence that Karen will make the same type of positive difference at the University of Minnesota that she has made at Indiana University.”
