Governor appoints Chancellor Harris to

Governor Mitch Daniels appointed Indiana University
Kokomo Chancellor Michael Harris to serve on the
Indiana Automotive Council (IAC) - a newly formed
group of automotive experts to enhance, grow, and
promote the automotive industry in Indiana.
This group met for the first time on Wednesday, August
31, to begin discussions on specific action items
including how to strengthen the competitiveness of the
state in the global automotive marketplace. The ultimate
goal is to stimulate long-term job creation and capital
investment and to make Indiana known as the automotive
state of tomorrow.
"Indiana University Kokomo is an essential partner in
the success of Indiana's economy," Gov. Daniels said in
a letter to Harris. "Hoosiers need an industry-led
initiative, in partnership with government and
universities like Indiana University."
The IAC is a collaboration between industry,
government, and higher education - a concept also know
as the "Triple Helix", which Harris introduced at a
regional mayor's summit held on campus on July 6 and
during his testimony to the legislative study committee
on higher education and economic development.
