Researchers’ Reception Crimson Cup Challenge 2016

Posted on 10/6/2016 12:29:58 PM

The Research Institute team would like to thank everyone who turned out for the Researchers’ Reception on Thursday, September 29, at Twisted Jimmy’s. We hope you took this opportunity to make new friends from across campus and discuss some scholarship collaborations. We hope everyone had as much fun as we did, and we are already talking about next year!

The formula to win the Crimson Cup changed a bit this year to reflect IUP’s Strategic Plan. Both first and second places are based on: attendance is worth 50 percent, and the percent increase (or decrease) in the number of proposals and awards received are each worth 25 percent. Base employee numbers in each college were obtained from Human Resources.

The Winners Are:
