SPIRIT named a Mira award finalist
The SPIRIT program in the College of Technology has been named a finalist in the annual TechPoint Mira Awards. The awards honor Indiana businesses, schools and universities, and individuals for their contributions to Indiana’s technology-related economy.
Surprising Possibilities Imagined and Realized through Information Technology (SPIRIT), coordinated by Alka Harriger, is a finalist in the Education Contribution to Technology – Department/Program/Team category. Gary Bertoline was a member of the Serious Gaming Team that won the Mira award in this category in 2008.
