Undergraduate Initiatives

Celebrate diversity, foster inclusion, and pursue equity

At the Kelley School and Indiana University, we celebrate diversity in all its forms. We encourage you to learn from students with backgrounds and beliefs unlike your own, to share your perspectives, and to embrace a mindset of equity and inclusion.

Together, we create a positive learning environment—and prepare you to make a positive impact on the organizations you join.

Whether it’s a mentor’s guidance or the listening ear of an advisor, the Kelley Undergraduate Program is here to support you and your success.

The Kelley Office of Diversity Initiatives is a family. We’re here to support you as you go through college in every possible way. You will have advocacy and support.

With more than 70 student organizations, Kelley provides unique opportunities to connect with your community while working to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts. Many organizations center around communities, including women, LGBTQ+, international groups, racial identity, culture, and religious groups.

IU’s tradition of cultural support and celebration

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.

IU’s cultural centers and organizations become another home for our students. They are safe spaces for conversations. They provide education and resources. They celebrate students’ identities and help them reach their personal and professional goals.

IU is a pioneering leader among US universities for its diversity policies and programs. We are proud to be part of this tradition, and to continue to provide educational and career opportunities for all students.
