Expanding the collective understanding of our past
Under the guidance of University Historian James Capshew and the Council of University Historians, campuses created new online and traditional courses about the history of Indiana University. To engage students with the history of Indiana University, faculty members on various IU campuses created new online and traditional courses about the history of Indiana University.”
Online courses were developed in collaboration with the Office of Online Education, and featured for-credit and non-credit options. Non-credit options were available to IU alumni and the general public and encouraged all interested individuals to learn more about IU history.
Classes explored topics such as the creation of IUPUI, the history of student newspapers at IU East, and the fire that spurred the creation of IU Alumni Association.
