IU Day

Engage, Celebrate, and Support During IU Day

IU Day is about celebrating the people of IU and their relationships - the students who inspire us, the mentors who change our lives, and the ways we commit to learning about others as we lift each other up! Please plan to join us in celebrating IU's commitment to creating a better IU for all on April 20, 2022.

The Office of the Vice President for Diversity, Equity, and Multicultural Affairs (OVPDEMA) will host a table with other IU affiliates at Showalter Fountain for an IU Day Block Party. Visit us at the block party and take the student interest survey.
