Mini University

An IU education doesn’t end at graduation

Mini University is an opportunity for adults of all ages, IU alum or not, to return to the classroom—minus homework, tests, and the dreaded pop quiz. This enriching, weeklong experience takes place every year on the IU Bloomington campus and is led by the university’s world-class faculty and staff.

Due to the ongoing risk of COVID-19, we have decided to postpone the 50th anniversary of Mini U until 2022. The health and safety of our alumni, attendees, staff, faculty, and volunteers remains our top priority.

Thank you for your continued understanding during these unprecedented times. We can’t wait to see you in 2022!

For one week I am exposed to a wide variety of topics and am mentally energized. What else could you ask for?
