INDIANAPOLIS -

Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology says its new space in an emerging Indianapolis tech hub will help the school grow name recognition and keep connected with alumni. The Terre Haute school will in July open an office in The Union 525 in downtown Indianapolis. Rose-Hulman President Jim Conwell says many of the companies already located in the building have connections to the school.

Conwell says the Union 525 space allows the school to "engage with technology entrepreneurs and established companies, other educational institutions and STEM advocates in Indianapolis' growing tech sector." He says it will provide opportunities for new initiatives and continuing education as well.

Tenants include companies such as Arizona-based Levementum, SmartFile and Scale Computing, whose co-founder Jeff Ready is a Rose-Hulman alum. The building is also the temporary home of the new Purdue Polytechnic High School, which will operate there while renovation work on the school's permanent home continues.

Conwell says Union 525 checks several boxes for Rose-Hulman.

    • Benefits Of The 'Somewhere Between 4-40 Hour' Work Week

      Burnout. Retirement. Altered work schedules--so many conversations about this of late. Tim Ferriss of course has his 4-hour work week. If you haven't read the book, (I'd be shocked if you haven't by now), it's worth a quick read. However, as much as it's lovely to consider, I don't really think a 4-hour work week is feasible for most of us--unless we are an ex-POTUS, Brad Pitt or Tim Ferriss. On the other end of the spectrum, we have the 40-hour (or more) work week.
