A community where you belong

Student success

You have the academic freedom to pursue whatever intrigues you—and you’ll be encouraged to do it.

Graduate Students Association

An IU education gives you the tools to succeed no matter which direction life takes you, whether your next step is graduate school or employment.

Faculty who inspire

Our faculty are not only brilliant researchers and sought-after experts, they’re also committed teachers who do their best to instill passion in their students.
