Events

Four years of Bicentennial events start now

The Indiana University Bicentennial will offer many events between 2016 and 2020 on all IU campuses and at other locations around the state and nation.

These events will stem from the Office of the Bicentennial’s Signature Projects, Project Proposals, and other qualifying events being hosted with IU-affiliated campuses, schools, departments, and organizations.
