Welcome to Diversity at IU Southeast

You are an important part of our quest to build a foundation for a diverse community in this region and the world. We invite you to explore the information, training opportunities, events, and resources that demonstrate our most recent efforts to enhance knowledge of and respect for difference and inclusivity.

Embracing Diversity at IU Southeast

IU Southeast’s long-range goal is to become a model for the support of diversity on campus and in the community, especially in Southern Indiana; however, the campus recognizes that achieving this goal will require continuous efforts.

We believe that access to higher education, preparation to enter the workforce, and the ability to function in a diverse and globalized society is critical for student success. To that end, IU Southeast will continue to strengthen and improve diversity in its programming, hiring, student recruitment, business practices, and community initiatives.

Brown-Forman Corporation Diversity Champion of the Year

It was presented to IU Southeast by One Southern Indiana, and recognizes the university as "a company that has made significant contributions to the advancement of the community through diversity initiatives and inclusion efforts." The other finalists for the award were InGrid Design and Ivy Tech Community College of Indiana-Sellersburg. Read more about the award.
