Learn about IU’s tradition of celebrating and supporting diversity

Kelley students are part of the Indiana University cultural support network that extends across the Bloomington campus. In 1999, IU established the Office of the Vice President for Diversity, Equity, and Multicultural Affairs (OVPDEMA) to cultivate a diverse, inclusive environment that supports equal access, participation, and representation on all IU campuses.

When you explore IU’s cultural centers and organizations, you’ll find educational resources, safe spaces for meaningful conversations, study spaces, and many celebrations, events, and recreational activities. We encourage you to explore these organizations during your time at Kelley.

Some of our students also get involved in IU Bloomington student government

Bias incident reporting

If you experience or witness harassment on the IU campus, contact the Incident Team with the IU Division of Student Affairs. You may also benefit from contacting the Kelley Bias Incident Support Ombudsperson at if the incident involved a Kelley student or member of the faculty or staff. The ombudsperson is a Kelley professor who provides students with safe and confidential support as they consider how to navigate incidents of bias or discrimination. The professor does not provide legal advice or investigate claims, but helps students evaluate their options.
