Traditions and Cultures of IU Course Expansion

Course Development Grant Program

One way Indiana University marked its 200th anniversary was the creation of new courses. IU encouraged the intellectual exploration of topics related to Bicentennial goals and principles. To facilitate this exploration, the Office of the Bicentennial offered course development grants to faculty and staff.

Course grants were first offered for the Summer 2017 semester and the courses took place through the Spring 2020 semester. In total, the Office of the Bicentennial supported the creation of eleven new courses on five different campuses. Topics included history, archaeology, media, health sciences, and the arts.
