Welcome to the Institute for Advanced Study

Since 1981, the Institute for Advanced Study has been Indiana University’s leading center for the pursuit of new knowledge and new directions of inquiry in all fields of study. With gifts from friends and alumni and the support of the Office of the Vice-Provost for Research, the Institute has contributed to the university’s research mission by promoting intellectual exchange that is primarily collaborative and interdisciplinary and by fostering the exploration of ideas at an early stage of development.

As of spring 2014, the Institute has developed a specific focus on Bloomington’s associate professors, as they advance towards full professorship. Ultimately, the Institute’s ambition is to be a locus of intellectual vitality and community.
