IU Diversity Resources

“To navigate successfully an increasing diverse and global workplace and society, it is essential that our students be exposed to the broad range of perspectives that can only be achieved through a diverse student body. Moreover, the value of diverse perspectives is not limited to one campus, nor to one side of the podium. Students must also be exposed to a diverse faculty and professional staff, who act as teachers and role models.” —IU’s 17th president Adam Herbert and current President Michael A. McRobbie, in a statement released June 6, 2007

IU has many resources university-wide that demonstrate this commitment to diversity, including scholarship programs, cultural centers, and academic departments. In addition, IU Bloomington plans to double enrollment of underrepresented minorities by 2013. This goal will soon extend to all IU campuses and to faculty and staff recruitment as well.
