Robert E. Cavanaugh Hall is named for one of the academic visionaries who blazed the trail that eventually led to IUPUI. Cavanaugh was the second man to head the Indiana University Extension Center (1918-21) in the state's capital city, Indianapolis. From that post, he became director of the IU Extension Division, a post he held until 1946. His influence in the growth of IU's Indianapolis programs led university officials to choose IUPUI's first academic building - originally known as "building A" - to bear Cavanaugh's name.
