Expanding the Bounds of Knowledge & Culture

IU Bloomington is home to some of today's leading scholars in the arts & humanities, as well as a wide array of museums, libraries, archives, and research institutes that draw scholars from around the world to campus for lectures, symposia, and collaborative projects that expand the bounds of knowledge, culture, and the human condition.

The Arts & Humanities Council contributes to the campus research culture through a variety of initiatives that touch upon diverse fields in the arts & humanities and support faculty and students in schools and departments all across campus.
