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.
