Investing in the future of research
In January, 2007, IUPUI Executive Vice Chancellor and Dean of the Faculties Uday Sukhatme announced the proposals to be funded under the Signature Center initiative.
“This initiative is intended to take IUPUI’s research effort to a much higher level by helping to create a significant number of Signature Centers which will stand out like skyscrapers over the surrounding landscape,” Sukhatme said.
Such structures need support and the Signature Center initiative is designed to provide approximately $7 million of flexible money over the next three years (equally shared between the central administration and the academic units). In 2006-2007, 18 centers were funded and in 2007-2008, 10 centers were funded.
