IU Makes $30 Million Investment in Faculty Diversity Hiring
Indiana University President Pamela Whitten has announced a $30 million fund to accelerate IU's efforts to hire a more diverse mix of faculty, including researchers. The seven-year Presidential Diversity Hiring Initiative will focus on hiring from groups traditionally underrepresented in higher education, with the ambition of increasing their representation among faculty.
Student Processional at President Whitten Inauguration
Join the formal processional on Thursday, November 4, from 2:00 – 4:30 to celebrate! Students across IU campuses are invited to join! If you are free to attend, IU will provide you with a cap and gown and formally list your name in the Presidential Inauguration program. Be a part of IU’s history!
It’s about that time! Homecoming 2021 is here. We encourage all students to reach out to the culture centers and visit the IU Events Calendar for opportunities to get involved; such as purchasing tickets to the Neal-Marshall Black Culture Center's Fish Fry, participating in the parade, or attending the IU game. See you there!
