Welcome to IU Southeast!
This fall, there are so many great reasons to come back to IU Southeast. Since you — our alumni, supporters,
faculty, and staff — are always welcome here, take a look below at some of the amazing upcoming events and plan
your trip back to campus.
An IU Southeast favorite is the Common Experience. The primary purpose of the Common Experience Program is
to develop a shared dialogue among students, faculty, staff, and members of our community. This year’s theme is
Public and Private Ethics: Who Decides?”
There are many ways to participate in this program. You could attend one of the many Common Experience events

community is reading
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks

You are welcome to visit campus any time, but I am especially hopeful that you’ll take time to be part of this year’s
