Vice President Clapacs responds
Posted 8:58 AM by Luke
Here is the full text of Vice President Clapacs' response to ILN:
Let [me] share with you my take on this matter. When you used the word proposal I thought you meant something in written form and if that is your meaning, I never saw anything that well developed. I was involved in conversations with Chancellor Bepko and Bob Meadows about the typical planning issues..in this case whether the present Law Building could or should expand and if so in what direction. The two choices are obvious..along West St. to the north or along New York to the west. Our recommendation was that if we are to move ahead with an addition it should be to the west.

The real question was whether it was a good idea to use land area in that block for purposes not directly related to the academic mission of the Law School. That is to say should we save available space for library, classroom, and faculty office space in the future or use it now for functions that have some relationship to the Law School but are not as central to the core mission as the spaces just listed. The entire concept was in very preliminary form and while I understood there might be funding resources available it was never developed to the point where it could be advanced to the IU Trustees for approval. My office does not approve or disapprove. I don't recall having any conversation with the Dean about the idea but assumed Chancellor Bepko was handling that communication. The IU Bloomington Law School played no part in any of the discussions as far as I know.
