McRobbie takes citizenship oath


By Margaret Ely



President Michael McRobbie will become a U.S. citizen today, on his 60th birthday.

IU Spokesman Larry MacIntyre said the Australian native, along with his children Josephine, Lucien and Arabella, will take the Oath of Citizenship in a private ceremony in the Bryan House on IU’s campus.

McRobbie will take the Oath after living in Indiana for 14 years.

The Oath will be conducted by U.S. District Judge Sarah Evans Barker. Following the ceremony, McRobbie will have dual citizenship in Australia and
the U.S.

“He’s concluded this is his home,” MacIntyre said. “His family, children have grown up here. He wants to stay here.”
