June 13, 1982.
On this day, the Indiana Rose Festival presented IUPUI with its Adams Award in recognition of the campus's efforts toward city beautification. Scott Evenbeck, then associate director of administrative affairs, accepted the award on behalf of the university.
At the time, IUPUI's Grounds unit of Physical Plant was responsible for maintaining about 300 acres of campus landscaping. The unit had a staff of twenty workers and a budget of $400,000.
IUPUI Special Collections and Archives has many university records. Do you have questions about IUPUI's development? Do you wish to research the campus's past? Bring your questions to archives staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
