Diversity & Inclusion

We believe that tangible educational, organizational, and personal benefits result from applying a critical lens to ourselves and our environment, individually and collectively examining our biases, assumptions, and worldviews, and challenging and mitigating structural inequities. Our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion is grounded in our aspiration to cultivate intellectual rigor and curiosity among our students and to prepare them to thrive in and contribute to a globally diverse, complex, and interconnected world.

Student resources & support

The Office of the Vice President for Diversity, Equity and Multicultural Affairs, or OVPDEMA, is an indispensable clearinghouse. It can be your springboard to finding academic and career support. For example, every year, OVPDEMA offers 12,000 mentoring and tutoring sessions. Also through OVPDEMA, you can seek out financial support and scholarships.

If you need to request educational accommodations and assistance, you can find disability services through IU's Division of Student Affairs.

IU is committed to supporting students and has many resources available to assist you. Once you enroll at IU, you will gain instant online access to all sorts of student services simply by logging in to Student Central with your user name and password. You can report an incident of discrimination, harassment, hate or retaliation through the Division of Student Affairs. You can also report sexual misconduct through the Office of Student Welfare.
