Our Initiatives

Our focus is you

Indiana University is zeroed in on equipping our students, faculty, and staff with the fundamental tools and life skills to thrive. With our health and wellness initiatives, the Office of the Chief Health Officer communicates, collaborates and leads to help our community with a proactive approach.

Student mental health initiative

To help meet the needs of our community, the university has identified three focus areas and created a Task Force for each area to determine how to help the larger IU community while keeping in mind the needs of each campus.
