IU President Michael McRobbie announced today that he has appointed Executive Associate Dean in the School of Law John Applegate to the position of IU vice president for planning and policy, IU Spokesman Larry MacIntyre said.

The position, which Applegate took on July 1, is a newly created position, according to an IU news release. While the IU board of trustees must officially approve the appointment, MacIntyre said he expects the board to do so at its next meeting in August.

In his new position, Applegate will work on cooperation between various groups including faculty, state and other institutions. Applegate will also work with Purdue and other Indiana colleges in research and other educational collaborations, MacIntyre said.

“There’s a number of initiatives that the president has started or wants to start,” he said. “Putting those together is fairly complex.”

MacIntyre said Applegate has been in a similar temporary position with McRobbie for the past year or so.

“The president just can’t let him leave,” MacIntyre said.

Applegate will remain in his position with the School of Law while he is vice president for planning and policy, according to the news release.
