Expanding the collective understanding of our past
Learn about the fire that spurred the creation of the IU Alumni Association, which intercollegiate sport was first on the university’s roster (hint: it wasn’t basketball), and why they call IU “the mother of college presidents.” 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.
Online courses were developed in collaboration with the Office of Online Education, and feature for-credit and non-credit options. Non-credit options are available to IU alumni and the general public and will encourage all interested individuals to learn more about IU history.
