If you’re facing an issue that is affecting your ability to succeed at Indiana University Bloomington, you can get help from one of IU's Student Advocates, retired IU faculty and staff members who volunteer their time and expertise to help students facing academic and personal challenges.
In 1999, Indiana University 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. OVPDEMA serves as an advocate to replace obstacles with opportunities, so that minority and underrepresented students, faculty, and staff find a sense of belonging at IU. Educational opportunities for staff, faculty, and students to foster an inclusive and respective environment that encourages dialogue and interaction about issues related to equity, social justice, and intersectional diversity can be found through this link.
Indiana University does not tolerate acts of discrimination, hate, harassment, retaliation, or any other act that is damaging to our safe, civil, and inclusive community. If you experience or witness an incident on an IU campus, report it immediately.
The Trevor Project
Founded in 1998 by the creators of the Academy Award®-winning short film TREVOR, The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning (LGBTQ) young people under 25.
You are unique and so are your needs. That’s why Indiana University’s Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) offers a variety of counseling and mental health services. CAPS is offering a full range of services through remote and telehealth options to support your mental health while observing social distancing and public health guidelines.
If you’re a member of the IU community and you have experienced a sexual assault, the Sexual Assault Crisis Service (SACS) team is here to help. SACS is a special part of CAPS, staffed by counselors who specialize in working with those who have experienced sexual violence.
