Restating the words of Herman B Wells, IU President Michael McRobbie said “Make no small plans for Indiana University,” in his State of the University address Tuesday.

McRobbie delivered the speech at IU-Purdue University Indianapolis on his goals and initiatives, commending progress made and adding to his previous ambitious plans – even in the face of a credit crisis.

In the speech aimed at faculty and staff, McRobbie spoke about the need for more space for research and teaching. He spoke about the construction or planned construction of buildings throughout the University for business, information technology, life sciences and the arts.

Last year was the best year ever for external research funding, with $525 million, McRobbie said.

However, half the money came from government sources. With the current international financial crisis, funding might be harder to come by, McRobbie said.

Read Wednesday's IDS for more details of McRobbie's address.
