Advancing Knowledge - Preferred Collaborator

Research collaboration

IU Bloomington will actively position our campus as a preferred research collaborator.

This aligns with IU Bloomington Bicentennial Objective Six.

Space assessment

Goal: Conduct an external review of research space utilization.

Update: A comprehensive review of research space on campus and its quality was carried out by the Smith Group in 2015. The campus continues to evaluate and prioritize research space needs and renovations, working particularly closely with Facilities and Space Planning in the renovation and lab build-outs for Intelligent Systems Engineering in the Multidisciplinary Engineering and Sciences Hall. This includes the innovative use of space for an advanced “smart fiber” laboratory and three-story-tall fiber draw tower in the high-bay area of MESH.
