Indiana University: 200 Years in the Making
The Indiana Seminary was founded by the Indiana General Assembly on January 20, 1820. During its inaugural year, the school featured just one teacher who taught Ancient Greek and Latin. The school expanded its curriculum and became Indiana College in 1828 and Indiana University in 1838. January 20, 2020 will be Indiana University’s 200th anniversary.
To mark this momentous occasion, the IU Office of the Bicentennial engaged with faculty, staff, students, alumni, and the general public through exciting programs celebrating, chronicling, and exploring IU’s history, inspiring the next 100 years at Indiana University.
