Bicentennial Professorships

Professorships honoring the Bicentennial

Throughout IU’s history, faculty have traveled to Indiana communities sharing their expertise directly with the people of the state of Indiana, the nation, and world. Indiana University Bicentennial Professors are extraordinary faculty who demonstrate a commitment to public outreach, community engagement, and translational public outcomes in their teaching, research, and service, and who will once again give public lectures to remind us of our role as a public university.

Between Fall 2019 and Fall 2020, each Bicentennial Professor will deliver approximately 5 lectures on behalf of Indiana University around the state of Indiana.
