CAHI’s goal is to support the scholarly and creative initiatives of IU College faculty, in order to foster both individual research activities as well as interdisciplinary cooperation amongst individuals, groups and programs in the arts and the humanities. The Institute sponsors conferences, workshops, performances, and offers research travel grants as well as fellowships to the faculty in arts and humanities in the College. Additionally, CAHI sponsors lecture series and invites distinguished speakers and intellectuals to our campus. Individuals, groups and programs in arts and humanities are welcome to reserve the Institute (located at the corner of Atwater and Ballantine Avenue) for meetings and seminars. CAHI’s space can hold up to 35 people for conferences or seminars.

We invite you to explore the resources we offer, and to discover the many opportunities we provide to enhance the scholarly and artistic endeavors on our campus.
