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 without the homework or tests! This enriching, weeklong experience takes place every year on the IU Bloomington campus, and is led by IU’s world-class faculty and experts.

Virtual Mini U 2020

Join us June 8–12 for Virtual Mini U 2020. Free to all participants, this educationally enriching experience will feature prerecorded and live video presentations by IU’s finest.

While we’ll miss gathering for a week at the Indiana Memorial Union, we’re excited to engage with you online this summer!

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