Former Indiana University Professor Makes TIME Magazines List Of The 100 Most Influential People


TIME Magazine revealed the final list— of the ‘100 Most Influential People In The World’ which includes athletes, actors, entrepreneurs and politicians. So who made the cut? An Indiana native!!

Not surprisingly, President Barack Obama is among the honorees, as is Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and presumed GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

But if that’s all too serious for you, plenty of funny people made the list too, with ‘Bridesmaids’ and ‘Saturday Night Live’ star Kristen Wiig, comedian Louis CK, and ‘Colbert Report’ host Stephen Colbert all making an appearance.

TIME’s roundup also had athletes like New York Knicks’ phenom Jeremy Lin and football player and cultural icon Tim Tebow, singers including Adele and Rihanna, and tech luminaries, such as innovator and venture capitalist Marc Andreessen and social media news guru Pete Cashmore.

Also, former IU Economics Professor, 78 year old, Elinor Ostrom was also on the list. In 1965, Vincent was offered anposition as full professor at Indiana University, Bloomington when it was very hard for any department to hire a woman. The first 15 years of her research career at Indiana University she focused on studying police industries across the United States. Elinor won the Nobel Prize in 2009 for her analysis of economic governance, especially the governance of common property like air, water and public spaces. Congrats!!
