Sign of the Times

Those who pass between Stapleton Library and the new Leonard Hall (formerly the College of Humanities and Social Sciences building) have likely noticed the aluminum “IUP,” more than 20 feet wide, on the library’s exterior. Installed in early August, the sign is a focal point for IUP pride and has already appeared in many selfies shared online.
English faculty member Matthew Vetter leveraged his decade of research on the “free encyclopedia anyone can edit” to coauthor the newly released Wikipedia and the Representation of Reality. The book examines Wikipedia’s strengths, as well as its weaknesses surrounding diversity and inclusion.
John Mueller, Department of Student Affairs in Higher Education, coauthored an article in Frontiers in Education about a scale used to measure people’s defensive reactions during educational discussions that explore privileged identities and that engage participants across social differences.
