Training & support

We're all in this together

Everyone at IU can play a role in achieving a healthier, happier campus. We’ve created tools to help you do just that, regardless of your place within the IU community.

We are stronger together

Some people seem to have it all figured out—or so we think. The ugly beautiful truth is that we all have our “stuff,” and it’s so much easier to face if we don’t have to go it alone. After all, we all need someone to lean on from time to time.

You can be that someone to a friend or peer. Let’s create a culture of care that’s IU Strong. We are all in this together.
