Tippie Technology Dedication

Tippie View, an interactive wall of video displays used by business students and Pappajohn Business Building visitors alike, took center stage in a dedication ceremony on Friday, April 19.

Tippie View consists of five touch-screen displays and a stock ticker reporting the Dow 30 and stocks of local interest. The 70-inch center screen reports live market data and equities while other screens offer visitors a building way-finder, building class schedules, Cambus information, and more.

Dean Sarah Gardial thanked the Krause Gentle Foundation and the Krause family for their financial gift that made Tippie View possible. Attending the dedication were W.A. (Bill) Krause (BA57), his son and daughter-in-law Kyle (BBA85) and Sharon (MBA94), and his grandson Elliott, a current student at the Iowa Writers' Workshop. Members of the college's Tippie Advisory Board were in attendance and could test the technology firsthand.

Dean Gardial said, “About one million people visit the building each year, and we’re proud to have Tippie View at the building’s entrance. What Tippie View features is business. Anyone who enters our doors can see this is a business college.”
