A diverse culture that cares for the needs of all students
Indiana University attracts and supports a diverse faculty that mentors a student body coming from all socioeconomic backgrounds. We invest in academic support that takes into account the special needs and unique contributions of first-generation college students, veterans, students from underrepresented minorities, GLBT students, international students, returning students, and part-time students.
Developing empathy and understanding
From day one, in new student orientation (part of IU First Year Experience Programs) students learn to respect intercultural perspectives—and to integrate intercultural experiences into their studies and their lives.
Supporting a diverse faculty and student climate through hundreds of programs, offices, and services, the Office of the Vice President for Diversity, Equity, and Multicultural Affairs and many other campus organizations diligently advocate for success in academics and campus life.
