Creating a community of excellence

There is a community at Indiana University Kokomo that centers your voice and experiences inside and outside of the classroom.   

We seek and encourage the presence of different backgrounds, viewpoints and perspectives. We welcome your contributions and influence as we strive to provide our students, faculty and staff with a safe and welcoming environment.

At IU Kokomo, we believe in and promote an environment where all members of our collegiate community are – and feel – respected, experience a sense of belonging, and have access to the same resources, allowing them to reach their full academic and professional potential.

Achieving a diverse, equitable and inclusive Cougar family is an ongoing journey. But your additions to IU Kokomo can continue pushing us forwards on the path towards becoming a truly united school.

Town Hall Community Conversations

IU Kokomo brings together diverse groups of people to discuss important topics related to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Community Conversations allow for questions and answers of a distinguished panel. This series runs throughout the academic year, and each session is captured for continued education.

IU Kokomo Campus Civility Statement

Indiana University Kokomo encourages a climate of respect and inclusiveness that welcomes and embraces community members with diverse backgrounds and life experiences; deliberately seeks multiple perspectives, and supports the free and open exchange of ideas and civil discourse. Our community encompasses the life of the classroom including but not limited to an engagement in student life, service learning, travel abroad, and social media reflections. This community will thrive when we approach each interaction and conversation with an open mind and when each member respects the inherent dignity and worth of all people. Respect and civility should, therefore, be afforded to all individuals regardless of age, disability, educational background, family status, gender, gender identity and expression, nationality, race/ ethnicity, religion, position, sex, sexual orientation, socioeconomic level, or veteran status at Indiana University Kokomo.

A community where all belong

Indiana University is committed to creating welcoming, inclusive, and respectful campus communities where everyone can thrive and do their best work—a place where all are treated with civility and respect.
