Indiana’s public college and university presidents made their case in a Senate budget hearing at the Statehouse for funding increases Tuesday.

Each university presentation to lawmakers generally goes the same way: the school president talks about what their school does well, how they’re improving, and then how much money they want.

In some cases, as with Indiana University’s President Michael McRobbie, the school president frets over the budget bill’s funding increases.

Looking Down, Looking Out, and Looking Up: Maps and the Human Experience is the latest exhibit at the Virginia Kelly Karnes Archives and Special Collections Research Center at Purdue University.  WBAA's John Clare spoke to Outreach Archivist Adriana Harmeyer about the center and their latest exhibit that includes artifacts of Amelia Earhart, Gene Cernan, and Lillian Gilbreth.

University Faculty And Staff Reel From Trump's Travel Ban

For Babak Seradjeh, it’s routine by now – as a celebrated physicist at Indiana University, he travels abroad three or four times a year for work. Last Saturday, the assistant professor, with dual Iranian-Canadian citizenship, was heading to Israel.

“I left my house at 8:30, I took a shuttle to the airport,” Seradjeh says.

An executive order issued by President Donald Trump on Friday halts entry to the U.S. from seven predominantly Muslim countries, and has left Indiana colleges and universities scrambling to adjust.

Purdue University

 

A former Purdue University student is suing the school and several of its officials for what he calls reverse discrimination during a sexual assault investigation.

He's the second student to sue an Indiana college claiming the application of federal Title IX legislation is biased against men.

The unnamed male student, referred to in court documents only as “John Doe,” says he was suspended as a student and dismissed from the Navy ROTC program after an unnamed female student accused him of groping her while she was asleep during the Fall 2015 semester.

Global Matrix IV is a contemporary review of fine art printmaking in all media from around the world. This year’s exhibit presents a total of 96 images by 73 artists from 15 countries around the world. WBAA's John Clare spoke with Craig Martin, director of Purdue Galleries about the series.

Purdue University is seeing more research funding from its corporate partners, a trend that has officials hoping they can be less reliant on public funding.

Purdue gets about a quarter of its research funding from the private sector. An average of 500 companies chip in every year.

But the school’s corporate and global partnerships officer, Dan Hirleman, says the funds those companies contribute have increased from $37 million in 2013 to as much as $55 million the past few years.

 

One of every two computer science students at Indiana colleges will leave the state after graduation, according to a recent study.

It has schools such as Purdue University trying new ways to reverse that economic loss, by investing in trendy fields where students want to work – such as virtual reality, or VR.

It’s the next big thing in the video game industry, which is now worth more than the film industry.

Indiana University trustees voted in Bloomington Thursday to split Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne, which means IU and Purdue would govern the university separately. It still needs to be approved by Purdue’s trustees.
