Making IU home for all

IU is Home is an inclusion campaign created to share stories of Hoosiers from all backgrounds, cultures, beliefs, and experiences via podcasts, video profiles, and Instagram. We record and preserve stories that strengthen empathy and understanding in our community.

Explore the myriad perspectives of people in the IU family, and learn both how they found a home at Indiana University and how they've made it an inclusive home for others.
