Indiana University President Michael McRobbie takes the oath of allegiance to officially become a US citizen.

Indiana University’s President is now officially a US citizen.  Michael McRobbie took the oath of allegiance Monday in a private ceremony on IU’s campus.  McRobbie and his three children came to the US in 1997 when he was appointed as vice-president for information technology. McRobbie went on to hold a handful of other positions before being chosen as IU president in 2007.  In a press release sent out to media following today’s citizenship ceremony, McRobbie thanked Indiana and IU alumni.  He said he has had the opportunity to live the American Dream.
