INDIANA -- In a wide-ranging Sept. 14 interview, Indiana University of Pennsylvania President Michael A. Driscoll addressed an array of issues, from energy-industry drilling in the Marcellus shale to students carrying guns on campus.

 

Driscoll, 51, an electrical engineer by training, took over the helm of the State System of Higher Education's largest of 14 campuses on July 1. In his 10 weeks on the job, he had become a prominent and familiar figure to news media and community groups alike.

 

Driscoll's half-hour interview with The HawkEye, led by journalism student Sean C. Yoder, took place in a spare, high-ceilinged board room down the hall from the president's second-floor Sutton Hall office.  He sat back in a cushioned chair and gave brisk responses to questions on a half-dozen topics of campus and community interest. Occasionally Driscoll alluded to the University of Alaska, where he presided before arriving in Indiana, and to government policy makers in Harrisburg and Washington.
