Grand Challenges
Provost Lauren Robel
Monday, May 11: Provost Lauren Robel and Interim Vice Provost for Research Rick Van Kooten will co-host Grand Challenges at IU Bloomington, a town hall meeting to address research initiatives that attack big questions whose answers lie beyond current bounds of knowledge. In many cases, solving such challenges requires cross-disciplinary collaboration and the coordinated pursuit of "grand challenges" is a central piece of Indiana University Bloomington's Bicentennial Plan. The meeting is scheduled from 2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Whittenberger Auditorium. For more information, contact
