Winter College

A warm-weather learning escape

Join IU faculty members, alumni, and friends for an engaging and uplifting educational weekend in the warmth and sunshine of beautiful Naples, Florida. Each year, we gather for two days of learning, camaraderie, and IU hospitality near the beautiful breezy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico.

Winter College taps the expertise of IU’s finest. This year’s event features Dr. James Hamblin, doctor-turned-journalist, who will share stories from inside the world of health news; an introduction of The School of Art, Architecture + Design and its vision by founding dean Peg Faimon; and Terry Mason, dean of the IU School of Education, who will chronicle their international efforts.
