Emeriti House is a vibrant place for IU's retired academic community to come together and explore issues that interest you. Weekly or even twice-weekly programs at Emeriti House throughout the academic year continue to showcase the diverse talents of IU’s retired faculty and the persuasiveness of our Program Committee in mobilizing them. Events include: presentations by emeriti, panel discussions, distinguished visitors to IU, and a rich set of creative activities.

Events are scheduled for 4 p.m. on Wednesdays unless otherwise noted; Some events may also be scheduled on a Tuesday at 4 p.m. You can visit our past events page for a list of past events. 

For events organized by the IU Retirees Association (IURA), please refer to their website. Contact the program chair, Dick McKaig, at mckaig@indiana.edu to suggest any program ideas. All IURA events take place in the Peterson Room of the IU Foundation at 2 p.m. unless otherwise specified.
