On This Day in IUPUI History: May 20, 1983

May 20, 1983. 

On this day, the IUPUI Staff Council held a Health Fair for all IUPUI staff, students, and faculty. It was held on a campus lawn and in athletic facilities on the IUPUI campus. Outdoors under a tent were a variety of displays and health diagnostic tests for diabetes, tuberculosis, pulmonary function, and blood type, as well as cycling, fencing, and weight-lifting demonstrations. In the Natatorium and Track Stadium staff of the School of Physical Education led clinics on fitness through dance, volleyball, and tennis.

The IUPUI Staff Council convened its first meeting in 1979. In its forty years, the Council has played an important role in the governance of IUPUI.
