Despite the many challenges of this past year, there is one thing that will never falter: the spirit of Indiana University. After pressing pause on IU Day 2020, the IU Foundation is thrilled to bring back the event in 2021.
On April 21, all members of the IU community, near and far, are encouraged to come together and join the virtual celebration.
“It’s a day for everyone who’s connected to Indiana University to come together in spirit, to do good, and to show what it means to be part of the IU family,” says J T. Forbes, IU Foundation Interim President and CEO. “Especially after the challenges of the past year, it’s also a moment to recognize all of the IU people who have risen to the challenge of overcoming the pandemic.”
