Diversity & Inclusion

Education is about discovering new ideas & perspectives

Diverse perspectives and experiences are celebrated at IU East! Understanding one another is what makes us a family. In fact, diversity is a key part of the college experience and is woven into our strategic priorities.

Each year we host a number of events to celebrate and educate people about diversity within our own community and around the world.

Diversity Statement

Indiana University East is an inclusive and welcoming campus that recognizes, celebrates and embraces differences and commonalities. This includes, but is not limited to, culture, language, ethnicity, race, religion, political opinion, socio-economic status, ability, sex, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, veteran status, age and life experience. We are creating a learning and work environment in which people benefit from interaction with one another. At IU East, civil rights and civil liberties set the boundaries for respectful discourse and action. As we build an inclusive campus, Indiana University East will continue to engage in dialogue and commit the time, resources and leadership which will aid the continuous growth of respect for human rights of all peoples and cultures through curricular, co-curricular and administrative activities.
