IU Kokomo starts improving in "100 Ways in 100 Days"
In a twist on the "first 100 days" tradition for American presidents, Mark set out to work with his colleagues to improve IU Kokomo in "100 Ways in 100 Days." It was a successful beginning to his tenure as IU Kokomo chancellor. Numerous of colleagues from various parts of campus submitted ideas and started implementing them. By the 100th day, they had met and then surpassed their goal.
