IU Bloomington

Global leadership, rooted in centuries of growth

Indiana University’s mission to become a world-class leader in education and research began nearly 200 years ago, on the Bloomington campus. Since then, IU has grown to include campuses around the state—and boasts a worldwide impact growing just as fast as the technology enables it.

Through it all, we’ve never lost sight of the Midwestern roots that anchor pioneering advances in global affairs, education, medicine, and the arts and sciences. The Bloomington campus continues to be a cherished home for tens of thousands of students, and initiatives here set the pace for success across the entire university.
