Here's an overview of key happenings and milestones at some colleges and universities in the Hoosier State.

Butler University, Indianapolis - This 155 year-old university recently received the first patent in its history. The patent was issued for work done by Drs. Olujide Akinbo and Michael Samide to improve a device used in pharmaceutical, medical and environmental research. The chemistry professors made a critical change to a research tool called a Solid- Phase Microextraction Device (SPME) that extracts compounds from chemical solutions. Their adjustment to the existing device makes it sturdier and less expensive. The professors' version uses a refashioned metal rod with grooves instead of fiber glass that can collect the absorbent material. They received Patent No. 7,665,374.

Today, it has approximately 730 chapters and more than 120,000 members around the world. Although most of the centennial celebrations will take place in Indianapolis next year, the organization's officials are encouraging members and their families to make the "pilgrimage" to the Bloomington campus.

Indiana State University, Terre Haute - This university of approximately 11,000 students has embarked on a program to make it easier for adults with some college to get degrees. The university's Adult Career Education program targets individuals 25 or older with approximately 60 college credits. The accelerated program focuses on online courses and provides credit for college-level learning gained outside the classroom. …
