Welcome to the IU Bloomington Professional Council

Are you a new professional staff employee at IU Bloomington? This is a big campus with thousands of people and that can make it hard to find the information you need.

To get started, please check out our New Professional Staff Orientation document. It has dozens of links to resources ranging from health and wellness to professional development, as well as information from units such as Human Resources, IU Libraries, and University Information Technology Services.

Our mission

The Bloomington Professional Council provides leadership in the continual improvement of university policies and practices that enhance the quality of life of the professional employee, while supporting the institutional mission.


The Council is made up of twenty-one elected Council Representatives to represent the 2,400 professional staff employees of IUB.

Behind the Scenes monthly newsletter

Activities of the Council and its committees are reported in the Council's newsletter. All professional staff receive this publication automatically. If you are not a professional staff member but would like to subscribe (free of charge) to the newsletter, please forward email to the council with your request to iubpc@indiana.edu.

Raising issues

Should you wish to raise issues for Council review or comment on our current activities, please contact any of the Council Representatives. We welcome such input, and we hope to hear from you soon.
